Mahopac science teacher among finalists for national award
Mahopac High School science teacher Heather McArdle received another national nod for exemplary science teaching in February.
McCardle is one of just 10 semifinalists nationwide for the Shell Science Teaching Award to be presented at the National Science Teachers Association conference in April. If McCardle wins the award, overall she will receive $10,000.
It's not McCardle's first time receiving national recognition for her work.
In 2010, the association also recognized McCardle with a $1,500 award for excellence in inquiry-based science teaching. She also received the National Association of Geoscience Teachers Outstanding Earth Science Teacher Award for the Eastern Section and New York State.
