Alumna receives Presidential Award for Mathematics and Science Teaching

[2019.11.14, Thu 01:03] A Boise State alumna recently received the Presidential Award for Mathematics and Science Teaching for Idaho. Deirdre Abrams has worked as a science teacher at Donnelly Elementary School for the past 12 years and has been an educator for more than 23 years. "The award is really a testament to our entire staff and supportive, forward-thinking administrators and school board in our district," said Abrams, who currently teaches fifth grade. The Presidential Excellence Awards in Science, Mathematics and Engineering are announced annually. Established in 1983, they are the highest awards given by the U.S. Government to K-12 teachers of mathematics and science, including computer science. Nominations and awards are facilitated by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy and the National Science Foundation. "The most rewarding aspect of my job is witnessing the love of learning that develops, notably in science and math, as kids see how relevant and exciting it is to solve problems. Kids are just filled with so much light. It's an extraordinary life to play a role in that energy on a daily basis!".
