Oakland Mills Middle teacher is finalist

Susan Howe, a math teacher at Oakland Mills Middle School for 18 years, has been named one of seven finalists in Maryland's Teacher of the Year program.

Howard County Teacher of the Year, Ms. Howe has survived the first cut in a competition that began with representatives from the state's 23 counties and Baltimore. She was chosen as Maryland's outstanding Middle School Math Teacher in 1990.

"We know that behind each Teacher of the Year there are hundreds of additional dedicated and skilled teachers who are truly the lifeblood of our state," said Gov. William Donald Schaefer.

Maryland's Teacher of the Year will be announced Oct. 8. The winner will compete for National Teacher of the Year.

The state program is sponsored by the Maryland State Department of Education and the Maryland Business Roundtable Foundation in partnership with Westinghouse Electronic Systems Group, Maryland Public Television, WJZ-TV and The Baltimore Sun.

Bus service offered to day care location

Howard County schools are offering "space available" bus service for students who would normally walk to school if their day care provider or baby sitter resides in an area that qualifies for bus transportation.

Officials of the school system's Pupil Transportation Office say parents who use the service "need to be aware of the possibility of loss of the services on very short notice if bus seating space is filled by students meeting eligibility requirements."

Applications for "space available" bus service can be obtained from county elementary schools and the Pupil Transportation Office at the Department of Education, 10910 Route 108 in Ellicott City.

Applications available for service academies

Students interested in attending one of the four U.S. service academies in 1994 can receive a nomination application by writing the office of Sen. Paul Sarbanes at 1518 Fallon Federal Office Building, Baltimore 21201.

The military colleges are the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo.; the Coast Guard Academy in New London, Conn.; the Naval Academy in Annapolis; and the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, N.Y.

Qualified applicants must be U.S. citizens residing in Maryland; at least 17 years old but not older than 22 by July 1, 1994; have high academic standing; demonstrate leadership potential through extracurricular or community activities; and SAT scores above 550 on the verbal portion and 600 on the math portion.
