Mrs. Heather Simpson, teacher at Hueytown Elementary School, was selected as one of the five elementary school mathematics recipients of the 2016 Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST). The 2016 PAEMST awardee will be selected from the state finalists by a national selection committee at a later date. The national award carries a cash prize of $10,000!
This is one of the highest honors that can be bestowed upon a teacher. Heather's selection clearly indicates her ability and dedication in educating students and also recognizes her leadership and innovative teaching practices.
As a recognized educational leader, Heather will now be presented with opportunities to participate in educational programs and decisions.
