Teachers can be nominated by a colleague, administrator, student or parent. Once nominated, teachers submit an application. Then, an outstanding elementary, middle and high school teacher is selected from each of the eight districts based on their philosophy on how students learn mathematics, their participation in professional development and organizations, as well as their leadership roles. After receiving a district award, teachers are eligible to apply for a state teaching award. To learn more about the OCTM awards, please visit OCTM Awards.

Akron Public Schools and the entire Firestone family are pleased to announce that Jenny Walls has received the 2019 OCTM High School Teacher Award for the East District.

This year, more than 120 amazing classroom teachers were nominated for the Ohio Council of Teachers of Mathematics Teacher Awards. Through our rigorous selection process, 21 teachers were chosen for the district awards and six were selected for the state awards. The award winners will be honored at the annual OCTM Conference in Sandusky, Ohio, during the banquet on Thursday, October 24, 2019. Congratulations, Jennifer!
