Two Olathe teachers have won the highest award for science and math teachers in the United States.
The Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching recognizes two teachers each year from every state. A panel of scientists, mathematicians, and educators select the winners, who receive a $10,000 award from the National Science Foundation.
Olathe educators took home both Kansas awards this year. Jeremi Wonch won for her contributions to middle school science and Patrick Flynn for high school math.
