This podcast was two years in the making. Before the education world was turned upside down by the pandemic, a science teacher in the Elyria Schools had just learned he was named for a very prestigious national award; an award that is recognized as an elite honor in math and science teaching. Elyria High School Physics Teacher, Jeremy Secaur, learned in 2019 that he had earned the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST.) Due to COVID, Jeremy wasn't able to fully celebrate his monumental achievement until earlier this year, on May 24-26, 2022, when he traveled to the White House to accept the Presidential Award in person. We caught up with Jeremy to hear what that experience was like, and to talk with him generally about teaching and the world of physics. Congratulations, Jeremy!
