Lake Orion Teacher Selected as State Finalist for Presidential Award

Francie Robertson, a fourth grade teacher at Pine Tree Elementary, has been selected as a Michigan state-level finalist in mathematics by the selection committee for this year’s Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST) Program. She is one of two mathematics teachers selected to represent our state’s best at the national competition. The state selection team said they were very impressed with her commitment to excellence in teaching and her compassion for students.  

As a state-level finalist Francie is automatically a candidate for the state Presidential Award which will be determined by judging at the national level. A national committee reporting to the National Science Foundation will name the teacher selected for the Presidential Awards from Michigan’s finalist(s).  The teacher selected as the state Presidential Awardee will be notified officially by the White House in the spring of 2015. Each state Presidential Awardee will receive $10,000 and an all-expense-paid trip for two to Washington, D.C., where Presidential Awardees will be honored in a variety of recognition events.
