Outstanding Mathematics Teacher Awards

The Louisiana Association of Teachers of Mathematics (LATM) honors outstanding elementary, middle, and high school teachers from participating schools each year.  LATM also honors an outstanding new teacher who is in his/her first three years of teaching.  We also honor an outstanding mathematics educator, which can include supervisors, coaches, lead teachers, university instructors, Department of Education personnel or others who have made a significant contribution to mathematics education (non K-12 classroom teacher).  One of the goals of LATM is to honor and recognize those individuals who model and promote standards-based mathematics teaching and learning for their students. If the nominee is not a current member of LATM, a membership form must accompany the award application. The membership form can be found under the membership link on this website.

 To submit an application visit our Awards page.
