The Weber School District is proud to announce that Maggie Huddleston, one of our seventh-grade science teachers at Sand Ridge Jr. High School, has been chosen as this year’s recipient of Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST). This distinguished award is given to one Utah science teacher each year in grades 7-12.
Maggie will be flying back to Washington D.C. in September to accept the award, and with it comes a $10,000 prize as the top choice for teacher of the year in Utah.
Maggie has been a science educator for 14 years in secondary education. Her innovative teaching style and exuberant personality make learning fun for all of her students.
This award recognizes “that the greatness found in our country is generated in the classroom.” For us in the Weber School District, we’ve long known how great she is! If you see Maggie, please take a minute to congratulate her on this amazing achievement!
