BERKELEY HEIGHTS – A Hamilton Terrace Elementary School science teacher won a 2008 Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching.
Susan Poage has taught kindergarten in Berkeley Heights since 2001. She received a Master of Arts in Early Childhood Education with Distinction from Kean University in 2007. In her application, she wrote that she is “committed to providing meaningful, hands-on experiences for the students” and wrote and secured two grants to build an outdoor classroom.
Teachers are selected for the Presidential Awards program based on their teaching performance, background and experience and participation in activities both in and out of school that relate to their roles as teachers. Applicants must demonstrate how their teaching enables students to better learn concepts in mathematics and science.
