Dear Alvar Garcia,

Congratulations on being nominated for a Presidential Award for Excellence in 
Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST). You have been nominated by Peter Hoffmeister.

The Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching 
(PAEMST) is the highest recognition that a kindergarten through 12th-grade 
mathematics or science (including computer science) teacher may receive for 
outstanding teaching in the United States. Awardees serve as models for their 
colleagues, inspiration to their communities, and leaders in the improvement of 
mathematics and science education.

Awardees also join an active network of outstanding educators from throughout 
the nation. Since 1983, more than 4,200 teachers have been recognized for their 
contributions in the classroom and to their profession.  Up to 108 teachers are 
recognized each year.

Presidential Awardees receive a certificate signed by the President of the 
United States, a trip to Washington D.C. to attend a series of recognition 
events and professional development opportunities, and a $10,000 award from the 
National Science Foundation.

The National Science Foundation administers PAEMST on behalf of The White House 
Office of Science and Technology Policy. If you are unfamiliar with this 
prestigious award, we encourage you to visit, where you 
can find out more about the award.

We hope that you will seriously consider applying. Teachers of your caliber need 
to be recognized for the excellent teaching they do. An online PAEMST account 
will be created for you so you may login to the system. You will be notified 
when your PAEMST account is ready and the application process is open.

Again, we encourage you to apply and look forward to receiving your application.

Sincerely yours,
   Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching
   Directorate for Education and Human Resources
   National Science Foundation

Generally Speaking,
