Two Vermont teachers have been honored by President George W. Bush for their work in the classroom.
Bush named Barre Town science teacher Valerie Collins and Pomfret School math teacher Jennifer Hewitt recipients of the 2006 Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science teaching.
Collins and Hewitt are among 93 teachers from around the United States to be honored. They’re the only teachers from Vermont to receive the award.
For winning, Collins and Hewitt will each get $10,000 from the National Science Foundation and an all-expenses paid trip to Washington, D.C. for a week’s worth of celebratory events and professional development activities.
