A1 - GSDMC Outstanding Mathematics Educator Award Nomination Form (Category A ...Part 1 of 2.... Classroom Teacher)
In an effort to recognize those educators who are doing superior jobs in the field of Mathematics Education, the Greater San Diego Math Council has established the annual Outstanding Mathematics Educator Awards. Educators will be recognized in two areas:

(B) Outstanding work outside of the classroom in support of Mathematics education in the classroom.
Nominations for the Category B (Math Educator Outside the Classroom) award can be submitted using the following form:

**This nomination form is for the Category A ...Part 1 of 2 ...(Classroom Teacher) award.

GSDMC wants to honor teachers who inspire students of all backgrounds and abilities to higher achievement in mathematics. GSDMC is asking you to consider the teachers you know. They may come from any of five levels: post secondary, senior high, intermediate/junior high, upper elementary, and primary. You should be able to state unequivocally, that “this is one of the two or three best classroom teachers of mathematics that I have ever known or seen.”

A key part of the process is a nominator (you), submitting a candidate and the information for that candidate and yourself. You may wish to scroll down and become familiar with the information we need you supply, so after gathering the information needed, you can easily complete it in one session. However, you can enter the information in multiple sessions. At the end of each incomplete session, the system will send you an email with a link to continue the session at later time.

The honorees will be honored at their school sites in the Spring of the 20/21 school year.

Honorees will receive:
- Monetary award of $250 (to be used towards math classroom or professional development)
- commemorative plaque
- lifetime GSDMC membership
- registration to a future GSDMC conference
- invitation to a GSDMC conference seminar
- invitation to speak at a GSDMC conference, if desired

Thank you for your support in our effort to honor some of the finest mathematics educators.
