City teacher wins national honor for math & science teachers

A teacher at a Manhattan secondary school is one of 103 teachers across the country — two from New York State — to win a federal award for math and science teaching.

A math teacher at East Side Community School, Camsie Matis, today received the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching, which comes with a $10,000 check. Matis has taught math and science for a decade and helped open the Bronx’s New Day Academy before returning to teach at the Lower East Side school. She’s currently on leave for a year serving a fellowship at the National Science Foundation.
