The Burroughs Wellcome Fund will present awards of $175,000 to five North Carolina math and science teachers. The Career Award for Science and Mathematics Teachers will distribute the awards over a period of five years to educators who teach science and/or math in public primary and secondary schools in North Carolina. According to the BWF website:
The purpose of this award is to recognize teachers who have demonstrated solid knowledge of science and/or mathematics content and have outstanding performance records in educating children. This five-year award presents opportunities for professional development and collaboration with other master science and/or mathematics teachers who will help to ensure their success as teachers and their satisfaction with the field of teaching. Special consideration will be given to teachers working in hard-to-staff, economically deprived classrooms in North Carolina. The award also offers schools and school districts the opportunity to fully develop teachers as leaders in the field.
