Class notes
July 27, 2013, 05:00 AM

State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson announced Marianne Chowning-Dray, a San Mateo County teacher, is among five nominees selected statewide for the 2013 Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching.

Chowning-Day is an Algebra II and trigonometry teacher at Eastside College Preparatory School in East Palo Alto. She has 22 years teaching experience that has included such educational settings as a large urban private school, rural and suburban public schools, a special education school for foster youth and on satellite television.

The awards go specifically to K-12 mathematics and science teachers. Later this year, a national review committee will consider the five California nominees and select one mathematics teacher and one science teacher as recipients of the 2013 award.
