Founded in 1948, the West Virginia Council of Teachers of Mathematics (WVCTM) is an organization that meets to discuss their mutual problems and seek the ways of improving the teaching of mathematics in the state. The aim of this council is to share information among mathematic teachers in the state.
Each year this council holds an annual conference to award teachers who have gone above and beyond in the classroom. This year, Clay County’s very own Grayson Hamrick was awarded the 2022 Middle School Math Teacher of the Year award.
WVCTM held their annual conference at Stonewall Resort in Roanoke, WV on March 18 and 19, where Mr. Hamrick, formerly of Maysel, was presented with his award. Mr. Hamrick served the students of Clay County for six years teaching fifth grade at H.E. White and mathematics at Clay Middle School. He recently relocated to Lincoln County, WV where he teaches Middle School Mathematics at Duval PK-8.
In February, Mr. Hamrick’s Duval Math students placed first place as a team in the Lincoln County Math Field Day. Mr. Hamrick is an active member of the WVCTM and the WV Math4Life state initiative. Congratulations to Mr. Hamrick and his family!
