Two New Jersey teachers will be honored in Washington, D.C. this summer with the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching.
Michael Lawrence, of West Orange High School, and Kathleen Carter, of North Hunterdon High School will each receive the honor, which comes with a $10,000 prize. In total, 108 teachers from across the country and U.S. territories will be honored.
The educators are shaping America’s success through their passion for math and science, President Barack Obama said.
“Their leadership and commitment empower our children to think critically and creatively about science, technology, engineering, and math,” Obama said. “The work these teachers are doing in our classrooms today will help ensure that America stays on the cutting edge tomorrow.”
