Award-winning teachers train at Miami's Discovery Center
The Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching were recently announced in Washington, D.C., and both Ohio winners have been active in programs sponsored by The Discovery Center at Miami University.
Hall and Pellegrin were among 84 of the country’s best pre-college-level science and math teachers judged by a panel of distinguished scientists, mathematicians and educators following an initial selection process at the state level.
In addition to the $10,000 award, winners receive an expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C., for several days of educational and celebratory events, including visits with members of Congress and science agency leaders.
Hall and Pellegrin join 22 other Discovery and iDiscovery educators who have received Presidential Awards for Excellence in mathematics and science teaching. Previous award recipients included Ann Haley Mackenzie (teacher education).
Discovery is a statewide effort to enhance the teaching and learning of mathematics and science across Ohio. Headquartered at Miami, the program is supported by state and federally funded grants and is directed by Sarah B. Woodruff and Terry L. McCollum.
