In 2024, the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) announced six finalists for the Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST) for K-6th grade. These finalists came from various county public schools across the state, including Washington County Public Schools, Anne Arundel County Public Schools, Baltimore County Public Schools, Queen Anne’s County Public Schools and Howard County Public Schools.

Dr. Carey M. Wright, Interim State Superintendent of Schools, expressed his admiration for the finalists saying, “I am honored to recognize Maryland’s six finalists for the Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching.” He further added that these teachers embodied the ideals of innovation, dedication, and excellence in their passion for STEAM education.

The PAEMST program was established in 1983 and is considered one of the highest honors bestowed by the United States government specifically for K-12 science, technology, engineering, mathematics and computer science teaching. The award recognizes teachers who have a deep understanding of the subjects they teach as well as the ability to inspire and empower students to succeed in those areas.

These state finalists represent the pinnacle of teaching excellence within Maryland’s counties and serve as both a model and inspiration to students and fellow educators alike. To learn more about this year’s K-6th grade finalists, visit the MD Department of Education website.
