Jeanine Moore, a math teacher at Long Neck Elementary School, has received a Delaware 2012 Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching, the highest recognition that a K-12 mathematics or science educator may receive for outstanding teaching in the U.S.
Moore is one of six educators from across the state being honored. She will take part in a weeklong series of networking and professional development activities in Washington, D.C. and will receive $10,000 from the National Science Foundation.
Two Sussex County math teachers have been named finalists for the 2013 awards – Karen Berry of Sussex Central High School and Kristin Carmen of Sussex Technical High School.
The winners and finalists will be honored at the annual PAEMST Recognition and Recruitment banquet on Feb. 5 at the Modern Maturity Center in Dover.
The awards were established by Congress in 1983 and administered for the White House by the National Science Foundation. The awards allow for each state to select mathematics and science teachers as state finalists. Those finalists then vie for the state title the following year.
