Recently, the White House named Natalie Darrington a recipient of the Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST). PAEMST are the nation’s highest honors for teachers of science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and/or computer science.
Natalie said, "Every teacher wants to make a difference in our students’ lives. We work hard each and every second of each day to help students recognize their potential. The Presidential Award validates all the recipients’ efforts to make a positive difference in our students’ lives. Personally, the Presidential Award provides a platform to advocate for my students and the realization that mathematics is not something to endure, but something that helps us all to know and communicate with the world around us."
