Welcome to Carson Elementary !
In December, President Obama named 102 mathematics and science teachers as recipients of the prestigious Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching. Awardees represented all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the Department of Defense Education Activity.
Congratulations to Carson Elementary teacher Elizabeth Vinson Grabois for receiving the 2012 Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching!
The Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching is awarded annually to outstanding K-12 science and mathematics teachers from across the country. The winners are selected by a panel of distinguished scientists, mathematicians, and educators following an initial selection process done at the state level. Each year the award alternates between teachers teaching kindergarten through 6th grade and those teaching 7th through 12th grades. The 2012 awardees named teach kindergarten through 6th grade.
“These teachers are inspiring today’s young students to become the next generation of American scientists, mathematicians, and innovators,” President Obama said. “Through their passion and dedication, and by sharing their excitement about science, technology, engineering, and math, they are helping us build a promising future for all our children.”
