The Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) has announced six outstanding K-6th grade teachers as finalists for the 2024 Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST). The county public schools that have made it to the top spots include Washington County Public Schools, Anne Arundel County Public Schools, Baltimore County Public Schools, Queen Anne’s County Public Schools, Howard County Public Schools and Anne Arundel County Public Schools.

Dr. Carey M. Wright, Interim State Superintendent of Schools, expressed his honor and congratulations to the finalists saying “I am honored to recognize Maryland’s six finalists for the Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching,” he said. “These finalists represent excellence in teaching and embody the ideals of innovation, dedication, and excellence. Their passion for STEAM education is truly inspiring, and I congratulate them on this well-deserved honor.”

The PAEMST program was established in 1983 and is the highest recognition bestowed by the US government specifically for K-12 science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and/or computer science teaching. The award recognizes teachers who possess deep content knowledge of the subjects they teach as well as the ability to motivate and enable students to succeed in those areas.

These state finalists are a testament to the outstanding teaching that takes place in Maryland’s counties and serve as both a model and an inspiration to students and fellow teachers. To learn more about this year’s finalists in the K-6th grade, visit the MD Department of Education website.
