PTMS TEACHER SELECTED TO MICKELSON EXXONMOBIL TEACHERS ACADEMY

Constance Massey, a Pine Tree Middle School teacher, has been selected to attend the 2015 Mickelson ExxonMobil Teachers Academy for math and science teachers.  This year's Academy will be July 27-31 at Liberty Science Center in Jersey City, New Jersey. Massey will receive an all expense trip to this year's Academy.

The Send My Teacher website received an overwhelming response with more than 1,500 teachers from across the country applying. The selection panel based their decision on teacher qualifications, dedication to inspiring students and overall commitment to enhancing the teaching profession.

During the week-long Academy, participants will work with a curriculum developed by the National Science Teachers Association and Math Solutions. After the program, teachers will return to their classrooms reinvigorated with the passion to teach students how to be science literate, using hands-on experiments that show how math and science surround us daily.

Since 2005, more than 4,500 teachers have been trained at the Academy, impacting the lives of more than 300,000 students nationwide.

Congratulations, Ms. Massey!  PTISD is proud of you!
