Congratulations to MƒA Master Teachers Jason Garofalo and Erica Guzman for being named recipients of the 2017 Sloan Award for Excellence in Teaching Science and Mathematics, given by the Fund for the City of New York and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. This prestigious award recognizes creative mathematics and science teachers who achieve superb results and inspire young people to pursue careers in mathematics and science.

Jason and Erica, who both teach high school mathematics, join our growing list of MƒA teacher Sloan award winners over the years. Each has been celebrated as an extraordinary STEM teacher in New York City public high schools.












To qualify, teachers must teach mathematics or science in city high schools for at least five years and must “demonstrate excellence in teaching and in achieving results.”

The winners are chosen by an independent panel of scientists, mathematicians, and educators and received a $5,000 award as well as $2,500 for their schools’ science or math departments. Jason and Erica were honored at an awards ceremony on December 4.
