  Mr. KILMER. Madam Speaker, I rise today to recognize Angela Salo for 
her unparalleled commitment to her fifth-grade students at DeLong 
Elementary School in Tacoma, Washington. In October, Angie's work for 
our community was recognized nationally, when she received the National 
Science Foundation's

Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching.
  This award recognizes outstanding K-12 teachers for their 
contributions to the teaching and learning of science, technology, 
engineering, mathematics, and computer science. Angie's passion for 
science is reflected in the unique opportunities afforded to her 
students, including Skype calls with Brazilian fifth-graders to discuss 
climate change and coding lessons featuring LEGO robotics.
  For Angie, the award is just the latest in an impressive 22-year 
career that has seen her make an enduring impact on countless young 
students in the Tacoma Public Schools system. Indeed, there is no 
greater testament to Angie's dedication to teaching than her students. 
Each day, they arrive smiling and curious, ready to take in the 
knowledge that will soon allow them to help solve the problems of today 
and tomorrow.
  Madam Speaker, we are extraordinarily lucky to have Angie in our 
district. Her devotion in the classroom is a service not only to her 
students, but to us all. I am honored to stand before Congress today 
and recognize her important work.
