The national spotlight is shining on two South Mississippi teachers.
Pass Christian High School math teacher Paige Cobb and Hancock High School science teacher Dr. Shani Bourn are two of four teachers selected from Mississippi as 2019 finalists for the Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching.
This program is the nation’s highest honor for math and science teachers.
The Mississippi State Board of Education will recognize these finalists later this fall.
National winners are typically announced about a year and a half after state finalists have been chosen.
We’ll keep you posted.
