    The 2014-2015 nomination period for 7-12 grade mathematics and science (including computer science) teachers for the Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST) program is currently open.   You can nominate a teacher for PAEMST, we are seeking your help to once again identify great teachers for the current round of competition. 


    PAEMST is the nation’s highest honors for teachers of mathematics and science (including computer science). Established by Congress in 1983, the PAEMST program authorizes the President to bestow up to 108 awards each year. NSF administers PAEMST on behalf of The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. Presidential awardees receive a certificate signed by the President of the United States, a trip for two to Washington, D.C., to attend a series of recognition events and professional development opportunities, and a $10,000 award from the National Science Foundation (NSF). PAEMST’s most recent cohort of awardees even had the opportunity to meet with President Barack Obama.


    Please consider nominating a talented teacher using the PAEMST website today. The 2014-2015 nomination deadline is April 1, 2015, and the application deadline is May 1, 2015. Applications will be available on the PAEMST website on November 1, 2014.


    In addition, we hope that you will help expand the pool of outstanding teachers that apply for this award. Please find sample social media messaging below to help you easily share this opportunity with your personal network:

    NHTM President Cecile Carlton sent the following letter to administrators and mathematics teachers in New Hampshire regarding our new membership policy. You are encouraged to share this information with your colleagues:

    Working together NHTM can make a difference by continuously and consciously focusing on improving mathematics instruction in New Hampshire.

    As you prepare for the upcoming school year I am excited to inform you about the New Hampshire Teachers of Mathematics (NHTM) membership opportunities. At our May 2014 Executive Board Meeting, a motion made by then President Greg Superchi was passed that offers first year teachers and teachers new to teaching mathematics in New Hampshire a free one-year membership in our state professional organization.

    The resolution as passed reads:

    Available beginning the 2014-15 school year, NHTM will offer free one-year NHTM memberships to undergraduate students, preservice teachers, first year teachers, PreK-6 teachers who have not held a NHTM (or NHJEM) membership previously, and experienced teachers in their first year of teaching within New Hampshire. The free one-year membership will also make the member eligible to receive the “reduced rate” at the NHTM Dine & Discuss and Spring Conference (which typically is set just high enough to cover meals) for that membership year.

    Proof of eligibility for the membership will need to be forwarded to the mem- bership chair, via email or paper mail, by the applicant, before exercising any membership benefits.

    Do pass this information on to the teachers in your school and district. Read more about resources, membership, and professional development opportunities for your teachers by visiting our website: http://www.nhmathteachers.org/, completing the online membership application, or downloading and sending it to our Membership Chair, Gretchen Scruton via e-mail at gretchen.scruton@gmail.com or mailing via USPS to Gretchen care of 44 Greenough Road, Plaistow NH 03865.

    The mission of the New Hampshire Teachers of Mathematics is to provide vision and leadership in improving the teaching and learning of mathematics so that each student is ensured quality mathematics education and each teacher of mathematics is ensured the opportunity to grow professionally.
