TEAMS Angelina Pizzirusso Memorial Award Application

Angelina Pizzirusso was a  high school math teacher and math consultant for TCDSB. She had a passion for the teaching and learning of mathematics. She supported all students by providing them with the tools and strategies needed for successful math learners. She believed that all students could develop a positive  attitude in the learning of mathematics.
The Toronto Educators Association for MathematicS (TEAMS) Angelina Pizzirusso Award is presented to students attending schools in the TEAMS region who demonstrate perseverance in mathematics. Struggling students who have worked hard to make progress are ideal candidates for this award, rather than high achievers. Please consider your students with IEPs or other issues affecting achievement.
There will be four awards granted each year - one student in grade 8 and one student in grade 9 in each board  (TDSB and TCDSB). For the grade 9 students, preference will be given to students enrolled in MFM1P and MAT1L.
Each winning student will receive a bursary of $100, along with a certificate from TEAMS. Additionally, the teachers submitting will receive a digital certificate to pass on to each nominated student.
The TEAMS region consists of schools in the TCDSB and those in the TDSB from the following legacy boards: Toronto, York, East York, and Etobicoke.
The deadline for elementary and for semester 1 for grade 9 submissions is February 28; the awards for grade 8 will be awarded in April.
The deadline for semester 2 or full year secondary students is April 30; the awards for grade 9 will awarded in May.
