September 12 2018 | School News

Anacostia Elementary Campus 2nd grade math teacher Brittany Lewis has been selected as a state-level finalist for this year’s Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST).

Established in 1983, PAEMST is the highest award K-12th grade mathematics and science teachers can receive from the U.S. government. Nominees complete a rigorous application process that requires them to demonstrate their excellence in content knowledge and ability to adapt to a broad range of learners and teaching environments.

Ms. Lewis, who also serves as Math Department Chair at our Anacostia Elementary Campus (AEC), will be honored at OSSE’s annual educator awards in May 2019, and she will move on to the national-level competition.

What Parents are Saying

“Our family chose DC Prep because of its balanced focus on academic rigor and character development. Having DC Prep as an option ensures that my children learn personal responsibility and are exposed to the highest academic performance standards. The results speak for themselves. Families should not need to leave the city or pay for private school in order to give their children a high-quality education.”
