Boston Teacher Wins Presidential Award for Excellence in Math & Science

Congratulations are in order for Wai Chin Ng, a 5th grade teacher at Josiah Quincy Elementary School, who is one of 85 educators from across the country to receive the prestigious Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching. The White House has announced President Barack Obama will honor these selected teachers next week.

 “Our students are so fortunate to have some of the very best teachers in the country working in their schools,” said Boston Public Schools (BPS) Superintendent Carol R. Johnson. “A great teacher, such as Mr. Ng, can inspire students for years to come. As we continue to talk about school reform and transformation we can’t take for granted the importance of a great teacher at the head of every classroom. I am honored to call Mr. Ng a colleague.”

Winners of this Presidential honor receive a $10,000 award from the National Science Foundation to be used at their discretion and travel to Washington, D.C., for an awards ceremony and several days of educational and celebratory events, including visits with members of Congress and the Administration. Congratulations to Mr. Ng and the Quincy School!
