Each year RIMTA highlights the outstanding work and contributions made by Rhode Island teachers and students to mathematics education through its three RIMTA Recognition Awards categories:
an “Outstanding Teacher of the Year” who has demonstrated the effective characteristics of an outstanding practitioner who positively impacts mathematics education for all members of the school community,
an “Outstanding Rookie of the Year” who has shown outstanding promise for positively impacting mathematics education within their first three years of teaching, and
an “Outstanding Student of the Year” who has shown “true grit” through sustained success and academic progress in the mathematics classroom.
Applications for these three award categories are now open and available through theRIMTA Website (rimta.net) under the “Awards and Grants” tab.
Completed applications are due on or before January 31, 2022. The “Outstanding Teacher of the Year” and “Outstanding Rookie of the Year” will be recognized at RIMTA’s spring conference on March 26, 2022. The “Outstanding Student of the Year” will be honored at their school in March at a date and time to be determined.
Questions and completed applications should be directed to Sara Donaldson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for helping to promote mathematics excellence in Rhode Island!
