Telling Stories and Having an Impact

During our work for the Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics & Science Teaching (PAEMST), we had the opportunity to get to know and be inspired by hundreds of teachers from around the country.

We also got the opportunity to tell their stories and ask them to explain the importance of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education. We produced these videos – along with photo slideshows documenting the teachers' experience in D.C. – for each of the awards presentations.
