Hail to the Teach

At the White House ceremony honoring Michelle Meredith Shearer M.S.’96 as 2011 National Teacher of the Year, President Barack Obama praised the AP chemistry teacher, saying, “At a time when our success as a nation depends on our ability to out-educate other countries, we desperately need more Michelles out there.”

Shearer, a teacher for 14 years, earned a master’s in deaf education at McDaniel and her bachelor’s at Princeton University. “Her specialty is taking students who are normally underrepresented in science, such as minorities, women, students with disabilities — even students who say equations and formulas are just not their thing — and helping them discover the scientist within,” Obama said.
