The Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) has announced six finalists for the 2024 Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST) for K-6th grade. These top-performing county public schools 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 Harford County Public Schools.

Dr. Carey M. Wright, Interim State Superintendent of Schools, expressed his admiration for these outstanding teachers: “I am honored to recognize Maryland’s six finalists for the Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching.” He added, “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 to recognize the highest achievements in K-12 science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM), and computer science teaching. The award acknowledges educators who possess deep content knowledge of their subject matter while also having the ability to motivate and inspire students to succeed in STEM fields.

The state finalists serve as a model and an inspiration not only to their students but also to fellow teachers across the state. They are among the most outstanding educators Maryland’s counties have to offer. To learn more about this year’s K-6th grade finalists, visit the MD Department of Education website.
