JACQUELINE MITCHELL MATHEMATICS EDUCATOR AWARD

2022 RECIPIENT: Lisa Coburn



The Association of Teachers of Mathematics in Maine [ATOMIM] honored Lisa Coburn during the ATOMIM Annual Spring Conference on Saturday, March 26, 2022 for her outstanding contribution in mathematics in the State of Maine by honoring her with the 2022 Jacqueline Mitchell Mathematics Educator Award.  This award is given annually to an outstanding educator who demonstrates a commitment to Maine’s mathematical community through dedicated service.

Lisa is a leader in math education in Maine. She currently is a mathematics coach at Washburn School in Auburn. 


Her leadership roles include completion of the Maine Mathematics Coaching Project at UMF, attending and presenting at ATOMIM Conferences, as well as a current member of the ATOMIM Board. She has helped to plan and implement the Podcast in Pajamas sessions and was instrumental in having Pam Harris present at both the Podcasts in Pajamas and the 2022 ATOMIM Annual Spring Conference. Lisa has also presented at national mathematics conferences.


Her colleagues say the following:

“Lisa works with all the teachers in the building. She is a resource for the staff and is always bringing something new for the teachers to think about and helps them add to their teaching toolbox. Lisa is dedicated to providing students with quality mathematics instruction. Lisa is also working closely with another math coach in the district - helping her as she grows into the math coaching role.”


“When it comes to quality pedagogy, Lisa is the person that comes to mind. She encourages and supports teachers to improve mathematical practices in the classroom and engages students in rich meaningful learning experiences that promote strong mathematicians.”


We honor Lisa Coburn for all her work in mathematics and mathematics education by presenting her with the 2022 Jacqueline Mitchell Mathematics Educator Award.
