Rookie of the Year Nominations
Do you have a rising star in your school or district in the field of mathematics who deserves recognition? VCTM Rookie of the year is going to be presented to three outstanding and well-deserving rising stars in math education within Vermont one in each of the grade levels (Elementary (K-5), Middle (6-8) and High School.) Awardees will be given a cash prize and plaque, a year's membership to VCTM, and be expected to share their experiences with the VT math community in its eNewsletter and be invited to present the following year at the VCTM fall conference. To qualify, the nominees must be in the first three calendar years of their teaching (either part or full-time), and be nominated by a VCTM member. The nomination form has room for your nomination letter to be cut/pasted, or if you prefer, it can be emailed in as well (details are in the nomination form). Nominations are open until June 1, 2016.
