OHA's Fran Stang Named a Finalist
for National Science Teaching Award
Fran Stang, a 5th grade teacher at O.H. Anderson Elementary School, has been named one of two finalists for Minnesota’s Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST). The award is the highest recognition a teacher can receive for kindergarten through 12th grade mathematics or science. Awardees serve as models for their colleagues, inspiration to their communities, and leaders in the improvement of mathematics and science education.
"Being selected as a finalist is exciting and motivating for me," says Stang. "Teaching in Mahtomedi has allowed me to create and implement a highly engaging science curriculum that ensure the learning of all students." Each state names two finalists and the winner of Minnesota's award will be announced next spring at the White House.
