Congrats Mrs. Roberge!
Congratulations to Rachel Roberge for making it to finals for the teaching equivalent of the Oscars! Rachel was named a finalist for the Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST) in secondary science, and is considered to be one the top high school science teachers in the country. She was selected because of her knowledge and her positive impact on student achievement at Scituate High School.
“When I visited her classroom, the energy was just electric,” said Laurie Andries, Scituate Public Schools’ superintendent. “Rachel’s teaching holds the attention of every single student in the room. She’s one of our many great teachers who change student lives every day.”
The award for being selected as a finalist was presented on June 15, 2021, by PAEMST State Science Coordinator Erin Escher at the high school at a ceremony where Roberge was recognized by students and faculty alike. Current and former students offered testimonials of their experience in her classroom, and staff members offered their appreciation and congratulations.
“No one is more deserving of this recognition than Rachel. The way she works with students and connects with them is nothing short of amazing,” said Michael Hassell, principal of Scituate High School. “From biology to biomedical technology to advising our HOSA chapter, Rachel is a shining example of the teaching profession.”
Roberge teaches all levels at Scituate High School, and has been instrumental in the success of the school’s Biomedical CTE Pathway. She helped bring an Anatomage table into the school to give students more hands-on opportunities in anatomy and physiology, and she has helped students gain a deeper understanding of their own interests, talents, and skills.
