In 2024, the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) has announced six finalists for the Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST) for K-6th grade. These outstanding teachers hail from various county public schools across the state, including Washington County Public Schools, Anne Arundel County Public Schools, Baltimore County Public Schools, Queen Anne’s County Public Schools and Howard County Public Schools.

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

The PAEMST is a prestigious award established in 1983 that recognizes K-12 science, technology, engineering, mathematics and/or computer science teachers who have both deep content knowledge of their subjects and the ability to motivate and enable students to succeed in those areas. This year’s state finalists represent the pinnacle of teaching excellence within Maryland’s counties and serve as a model as well as an inspiration to students and fellow educators alike.
