State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Thurmond honored three outstanding math and science teachers from California today who are finalists for the 2024 Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST).

“These amazing teachers model excellence in how we prepare California students for the challenges and advancements of the future,” Thurmond said. “Let me offer my sincere congratulations to these educators, whom we honor for their leadership and instructional practices and how they are inspiring a new generation with passion and talent for science, technology, engineering, and math.”

The PAEMST program is administered by the National Science Foundation on behalf of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. The PAEMST is the highest honor bestowed by the U.S. government specifically for kindergarten through grade twelve science, mathematics, engineering, and computer science teaching. For 2023–24, those who teach kindergarten through grade six were eligible for the award. Presidential Award recipients are honored at a ceremony in Washington, D.C., and receive a $10,000 special award from the National Science Foundation.
