Tuscaloosa, AL – One of the most prestigious teaching awards in the field of math and science is the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching. Two Alabama teachers were recently named as 2008 winners. Reporter Alisa Beckwith-Ayilliath recently spoke with honoree Melinda Storey, a teacher at Mountain Brook Elementary School.
