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. The county public schools that received the top spots include Washington County Public Schools, Anne Arundel County Public Schools, Baltimore County Public Schools, Anne Arundel 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 gratitude to recognize Maryland’s six finalists for the PAEMST awards. According to him, these educators embody the ideals of innovation, dedication and excellence in teaching STEAM education. He commended their passion for their subject matter and their ability to inspire students to succeed in science, technology engineering and mathematics (STEM).

The PAEMST awards were established in 1983 to honor K-12 teachers who have a deep understanding of STEM subjects and the ability to motivate students to succeed in those areas. The award is considered one of the highest honors bestowed by the US government specifically for K-12 STEM teaching. This year’s state finalists represent Maryland’s most outstanding teachers who serve as both an inspiration and a model for students and fellow educators alike.
