Obama honors P.S. 110 teacher for science instruction

Helen Rogosin, a kindergarten teacher at Manhattan’s P.S. 110, is among this year’s Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching winners, according to the U.S. Department of Education.

Rogosin and 101 other teachers will each receive $10,000 from the National Science Foundation and get a chance to visit the White House. She was honored for excellence in teaching science, while another teacher from Dobb’s Ferry won for math instruction.

Two years ago, Rogosin won a grant to develop a paleontology curriculum she wrote called “We dig reading about dinosaurs.”

This year, the White House honored kindergarten through sixth grade teachers; next year, secondary grades teachers will be eligible for the honor. Nominations are open now.
