Congratulations to Hedgepeth-Williams Middle School’s Bruce Williams on being named a Presidential Award Recipient for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching. Mr. Williams was one of 117 to be honored by President Biden for this award.
“The reason I became a teacher was to make a difference in the lives of our brilliant young students and to motivate them to become lifelong learners. Receiving the Presidential Award is a very proud and humbling honor,” said Williams. “It reflects the tremendous support I received in my 20-year career from administrators, colleagues, parents, students, and family. This award inspires me to continue to set high expectations for my students and to improve my practice so I can become a better teacher.”
Williams has been an educator in the district for more than 20 years. He has spent the last 12 years teaching sixth-grade mathematics at Hedgepeth-Williams Middle School of the Arts. He previously taught at Joyce Kilmer Middle School for eight years.
