The Massachusetts Technology Leadership Council annually awards teachers in the state who go Above & Beyond "in the teaching of science, technology, engineering and math."
"To help raise awareness, the Council has established the Above & Beyond Awards. Annually, the Awards acknowledge and reward unsung heroes who are encouraging innovative teaching and learning in Massachusetts schools. They specifically recognize best practices in the teaching of science, technology, engineering and math (grade K-12). Up to 10 Awards will be presented in the fall of 2007. Teachers can apply individually, or as a team. "
This year's awards went to:
Mike Gyra - Barnstable High School
Gary Garber, Nick Dent - Boston University Academy
Bob White, Joe Bengiovanni, John Mauch, Alan Tibbetts - Braintree High School
Cynthia Villanueva, Heather Pacheco - Framingham High School
