WASHINGTON -- Four Missouri teachers were named Tuesday as winners of the Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching.
Missouri winners announced by the White House are: Susan Bizorik, a math teacher at James Elementary School in Kansas City; Christy Moore, a science teacher at Rohan Woods School in St. Louis; LeRoy Sharp III, a math teacher at David H. Hickman High School in Columbia; and Kathleen Dombrink, a science teacher at McCluer North High School in Florissant.
The program, administered by the National Science Foundation, bestows the nation's highest honor on mathematics and sciences teachers for kindergarten through grade 12 in the states, District of Columbia, U.S. territories and Department of Defense schools. The recipients were selected from more than 600 nominees and received a $7,500 grant and trip to Washington.
