Congratulations to our very own fifth-grade teacher, Carrie Akins. She is one of five state-level finalists for the Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST) at the elementary level. PAEMST is the highest recognition a K-12 mathematics or science teacher may receive for outstanding teaching in the United States. Awards alternate each year between elementary and secondary teachers. We are so proud of you! Read more about it at the link below.
