A Goldsboro teacher has made the grade and may be heading to Washington, DC. She has been selected as one of the three finalist for a presidential teaching award.

Tracy Thomas has been teaching second grade at Meadow Lane Elementary school in Wayne County for over fourteen years. She has been nominated for the 2008 presidential awards for excellence in mathematics and science teaching program.

This award was established in 1983 by the White House and is sponsored by the National Science Foundation. The program singles out the best teachers in mathematics and science grades K-12 in all 50 states and the four US jurisdictions.

In 2005 Thomas was named Wayne County Public Schools outstanding elementary math teacher.

If she wins the presidential award she will receive a free trip to the nations capital and a ten thousand dollar award.
