RI teachers win presidential award

June 12, 2012

Wakefield math teacher Brian Nelson and Warwick science teacher David Mather are this year’s local recipients of the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching. They join 95 other teachers from around the country who were chosen for the awards.

Winners will be honored at a White House ceremony later this month and receive $10,000 from the National Science Foundation, which they can spend however they want.

A panel of scientists, mathematicians, and educators chose the winners after a selection process at the state level.
