Congratulations to RP Connor Math Specialist, Lynda Brennan (pictured here with her students), for receiving one of the Nation’s highest honors for teachers. She was one of three NY State Math finalists for the 2017-2018 Presidential Award of Excellence in Math and Science Teaching.

The Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST) is the highest recognition that a kindergarten through 12th-grade mathematics or science teacher may receive for outstanding teaching in the United States. Up to 108 teachers are recognized each year.

Presidential Awardees receive a certificate signed by the President of the United States, a trip to Washington D.C. to attend a series of recognition events and professional development opportunities and a $10,000 award from the National Science Foundation.

Way to go Lynda!
