Twenty-two teachers from across Massachusetts have been recognized by a state organization – and two of the award-winners are teachers at Peabody Veterans Memorial High School.

PVMHS Statistics teacher Richard Gill and Chemistry teacher Tamas Juhasz were both honored for student achievement.

Mass Insight Education selected them as Partners in Excellence Teacher Award winners for their “outstanding contribution to student achievement and their dedication to College Success in the Mass Insight’s AP STEM program during school year 2013-2014. Mass Insight provides the state’s largest at-scale academic STEM program in Massachusetts, designed to increase participation and performance in Advanced Placement science, math, and English courses,” according to Mass Insight Education. 

The awards recognize the top math, science and English AP teachers from five regions across the state.

Partners in Education, a group committed to teacher excellence in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education, will host the second annual awards on April 17 at the Museum of Science in Boston.

"I've been working in and around schools my entire career, so I know first-hand the teaching talent we have in our public schools," said Michael Contompasis, who heads Mass Insight Education's AP STEM program. "It's inspiring that individuals from outside the academic world have established Partners in Excellence to recognize the vital role teachers play in our communities' economic growth."

Hey Mark, Stop being such a jerk. If you are going to bash the schools all the time, then at least be man enough to step up and give a shout out when credit is due. This is great news for the Peabody schools and for these two teachers. I for one think it's great and I am usually a critic. Kudos to these teachers and to the students for this honor!
