Excellence in Mathematics Teaching: Profiles of Two Oregon Teachers.
Rawers, Lois J.
OSSC Bulletin, v27 n4 Dec 1983
The Presidential Awards for Excellence in Science and Mathematics Teaching were awarded for the first time in October 1983. This bulletin spotlights the two Oregon mathematics teachers who were nominated by the state for the national award. Sue McGraw and Fred Board are master teachers with unique, individual, and exceptional classroom teaching abilities. Both are accessible to students and responsive to their needs. Besides teaching and actively participating in professional organizations, they both volunteer many hours to mathematics education in Oregon. Both teachers continuously update their professional training. The national selection committee rated McGraw and Board uniformly highly, but chose McGraw to receive the award for Oregon. (MD)
