October 2007 Alice Gabbard has been named, by the Kentucky Council of Teachers of Mathematics, as a recipient of a 2007 Mathematics Education Service Award.
The MESA Award was created by KCTM and is designed to recognize outstanding mathematics teachers (K-16), education professionals (administrators, state department personnel, supervisors, etc.), and business and community leaders who have supported mathematics education. The individuals or groups are selected for this special award in Mathematics Education Service and Achievement.
Nominations for this award are made by KCTM members. A committee screens the nominations, makes final selections, and then notifies recipients of the award. The M.E.S.A. awardees receive a certificate, which is presented to them by their nominator at the KCTM banquet. Alice Gabbard will receive her award on October 19 at the KCTM's Annual Meeting which will be held at Henry Clay High School in Lexington.

Making Essential Ideas a Focal Point of Our Mathematics
A number of professional organizations and respected individuals have made recommendations about what should happen in school mathematics. Moving beyond those recommendations and their classroom implications, this talk uses broadly accessible and engaging mathematical problems to underscore how students and others can think about mathematics in powerful ways. NKU will host a talk given by Rose Mary Zbiek, Associate Professor in Mathematics Education at Pennsylvania State University. Rose Mary was a member of the writing team for the Curriculum Focal Points for grades K – 8, and she is series editor of NCTM’s Essential Understandings, a soon-to-be available set of books on math content for educators spanning grades PreK-12
