Center for Creative Learning teacher Nancy McClintock has been selected as a state-level finalist for the 2012 Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST) Program. McClintock is one of only three teachers in the state selected as a finalist for this award which recognizes K-6 grade teachers of science in Missouri.
“Nancy is a dedicated educator and we are proud she is being considered for this award,” said Dr. Karen Hargadine, executive director of elementary education. “Her teaching strategies foster a love of science and math, allowing students to excel in both subjects."
A committee reporting to the National Science Foundation will select one teacher to receive the state Presidential Award. The state winner will receive $10,000 and an all-expense-paid trip for two to Washington, D.C., where Presidential Awardees will be honored at a variety of recognition events.
McClintock and the other state-level finalists will be honored at the 2013 Interface Professional Development Event on Feb. 21-23.
