Leading the way to excellence in mathematics teaching and learning in Louisiana
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.

The Carol Meyer Scholarship Award
LATM is pleased to honor the memory of Carol Meyer, an elementary school mathematics teacher who died unexpectedly at an early age. Carol loved mathematics and was a recipient of the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching. She was an outstanding math teacher and a fervent worker on the LATM executive board. She was always generous in sharing her love of math with her students and fellow teachers.
In Carol's memory, the Louisiana Association of Teachers of Mathematics is pleased to award two $500.00 scholarships each year to college upperclassmen with a declared major in elementary education, mathematics education, or mathematics. In addition to the scholarship, the awardees shall receive complimentary LATM student memberships. It is our hope that another future outstanding mathematics teacher or mathematician will be helped along the way by this award.
