Oregon Council of Teachers of Mathematics Area Recognition Award Winner-Gresham High School's Olivia Green

Gresham, OR -  Each year the Oregon Council of Teachers of Mathematics (OCTM) recognizes an outstanding contributor to the mathematics community of Oregon.  This year the Area Recognition for Multnomah County recipient is Olivia Green.  She works in the Gresham-Barlow School District in Gresham, Oregon as a high school math teacher at Gresham High School.

Math is advanced among school children by teachers and others who work on the progress in math education and work to increase the quality of mathematics education.  Oregon Council of Teachers of Mathematics members are math teachers and classroom teachers that are interested in keeping quality mathematics in Oregon schools. Olivia is one of those people. She has bolstered the mathematics community by working tirelessly as a leader of her department guiding them in creating common assessments and focusing on standards-based learning and proficiency-based assessing.  She is a master teacher who presents information in ways that students understand, allowing them to engage in discourse and process the math in both linguistic and nonlinguistic ways.  Olivia's contribution to our math community has been extraordinary.

Nancy Swarat, President of Oregon Council of Teachers of Mathematics, says, “It is an honor to highlight accomplishments, leadership, and excellent work of people who promote mathematics across our state.  The state of Oregon is fortunate to have forward-thinking people in the mathematics community!” 

Oregon Council of Teachers of Mathematics promotes a comprehensive math education community and supports educators in implementing the state and national mathematical standards.  OCTM has an international membership of dedicated members focused on mathematics education.

The Gresham-Barlow School District (GBSD) and the Gresham-Barlow Education Association (GBEA) are purchasing gift certificates from local Gresham businesses to distribute to GBSD teachers in honor of “Teacher Appreciation Week.”

The gift certificates come from a variety of merchants in the Gresham area. The school district and the education association are partnering together to purchase and distribute the 600 gift certificates.

“We felt it was important to do what we could to give back to the businesses that have supported our schools for many years, especially during this challenging time,” said Superintendent Katrise Perera. “We are proud to partner with the GBEA to honor our educators and promote the businesses in our area.”


The gift certificates will be handed out to GBSD teachers on Wednesday, May 6, 2020, from 10 am to Noon at three school sites, listed below. 

Gresham-Barlow School Board Members, representatives from the Gresham-Barlow Education Association, and District Administrators will be at the sites expressing their appreciation and distributing the certificates. 

The district will follow social distancing guidelines and gift certificates will be distributed in a drive-through format.
