Chris Bolognese, co-founder of the Columbus Math Circle and chair of the Columbus Academy math department in Columbus, Ohio, was honored with this year’s Buck Martin Award for Exemplary Mathematics Teaching by the Ohio Council of Teachers of Mathematics (OCTM). This statewide award is given to one secondary teacher in the state of Ohio each year. To be considered for this award, the teacher must have previously been chosen as the outstanding secondary mathematics teacher in one of the eight districts in Ohio. In response to the award, Bolognese said, “I’ll never stop learning as a teacher and will always support my students and colleagues to take on new challenges and risks.”
