Rockwood Center for Creative Learning teacher Nancy McClintock has been selected as a Missouri state-level finalist for the Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching Program.
The program recognizes K-6 teachers of science in Missouri and McClintock is one of only five teachers of science selected to represent the state’s best. McClintock, along with the other state-level finalists, will be honored at the 2015 Interface Professional Development Event in mid-February.
“The Center for Creative Learning is so very proud of Nancy’s dedication to teaching her fourth- grade students about science, and her passion for environmental education and inquiry-based learning,” said CCL Director Dr. Dottie Barbeau.
The teacher selected as the state Presidential Awardee will be notified officially by the White House in early 2015. Each state Presidential Awardee will receive $10,000 and an all-expense-paid trip for two to Washington, D.C., where Presidential Awardees will be honored in a variety of recognition events.
