WALDORF, Md. – When his principal asked if he was interested in moving from teaching fifth grade to taking over as the school’s science teacher, Michael Johnson experienced a brief moment of doubt. Science was not his favorite subject when he was in high school, but he was excited for the challenge. And he quickly developed an appreciation for science. “I jumped right into it and started loving it,” Johnson said.

The eagerness to try something new, to experiment and learn how and why things work the way they work – while taking elementary school students with him along the way – has earned Johnson a spot among a select few in the state as a finalist for the Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching.
