2015 PAEMST Award Nominations Open for Teachers of Grades 7-12

The National Science Foundation is now accepting nominations and applications for the Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST) program. PAEMST is the highest recognition that a kindergarten through 12th grade mathematics or science teacher may receive for outstanding teaching in the United States. Since 1983, more than 4,000 teachers have been recognized for their contributions to mathematics and science education. Awardees serve as models for their colleagues, inspiration to their communities, and leaders in the improvement of mathematics and science education.

The purpose of the South Dakota Council of Teachers of Mathematics is to encourage and maintain an active interest in and an appreciation of mathematics, promote professional growth of mathematics educators, to provide a forum for the exchange of views regarding the teaching of mathematics, to develop a cohesive link between and to promote the cooperative study of mathematics education at all levels, to integrate the study of mathematics into other areas of school curriculum, and to relate the study of mathematics to situations in life.
    We host a conference each February to help achieve the aforementioned goals.  We provide support for South Dakota mathematics teachers, connect them to each other, and act as a clearinghouse for information regarding mathematics and mathematics education.
    We act individually and collectively as consultants for school districts and for the Department of Education. SDCTM represents member concerns with Department of Education policies and actions.
