Annie K. Wallace Recognized with 2022 Richard H. Balomenos Memorial Award

At the Spring Conference on Wednesday, March 23, 2022, the New Hampshire Teachers of Mathematics (NHTM) recognized Annie K. Wallace as the 2022 Richard H. Balomenos Memorial Award recipient for her outstanding service to and leadership in mathematics education in New Hampshire.

Annie currently works for the New Hampshire Department of Education as the Mathematics/STEM Consultant and the President’s Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching State Coordinator. Before that, she taught middle school in Merrimack and then Hampstead. In addition to teaching, she served as an interventionist, coach, data specialist, program developer, and as a mentor to pre-service teachers. A former colleague at Hampstead Middle School wrote, “I heard that you are leaving Hampstead Middle School to work for the DOE…They are getting one of the finest on their team. You really get math, students, teachers, and what needs to be done in education. New Hampshire is so lucky to have you…In all my years there I never saw anyone who worked harder to make sure all students, at all levels got what they needed in mathematics. You are irreplaceable.”

Annie has been contributing to mathematics education at a state-wide level long before being hired by the NH DOE. She served, co-chaired, and chaired the NH DOE Professional Standards Board (2014-2020) and has served on the New Hampshire Quantitative Literacy Project (2008-2009), the Statewide Professional Learning Community (2010), the NH STEM Education Task Force (2015-2016), and on the Test Item Review Committee. She has been a program reviewer for the NH Council for Teacher Education and a PAEMST Reviewer. She also has been an instructor at several colleges in the state and a program developer and grant project coordinator at NHTI-Concord’s Community College. She presents at local, statewide, regional, and national conferences.

Annie joined the NHTM Board in 2012 and has served in many roles including president, NCTM/NCSM Representative, and Regional Structure Coordinator. The NHTM Board is thrilled that she continues her service to NHTM as the DOE representative to the Board. She serves not only as a valuable advisor and liaison but continues to volunteer to do critical tasks. As Rob Lukasiak, former NHTM president, said, “Annie Wallace’s dedication, leadership, and service as a member of the NHTM board, alone, is worthy of her being honored with this year’s Richard H. Balomenos



NHTM President Terri Magnus presents the Balomenos Award to Annie Wallace.

Memorial Award.  Anyone who knows her understands what an incredible person she is and what a joy it is to work with her.  She is always learning and challenging herself – sometimes even beyond what seems to be humanly possible!  I am proud to be able to call her a friend and a colleague.  She has had a profound influence on my own personal and professional development.  Her impact on the NH mathematics community is unparalleled and, thankfully, ongoing.”

New Hampshire Teachers of Mathematics 2022 Spring Conference:

A Night of Notice and Wonder

with Annie Fetter

March 23, 2022, 4:30-7:00, on Zoom




The New Hampshire Teachers of Mathematics (NHTM) held its 2022 Spring Conference virtually on March 23. Annie Fetter delivered an interactive keynote presentation, entitled "Notice and Wonder: Gateway to Student Sense-Making." Annie Fetter worked on the project that developed the first version of the Geometer’s Sketchpad and was a founding staff member of the Math Forum until it ended in 2017. Currently, Annie consults with schools, districts, states, and a world-famous art museum, and speaks at conferences, encouraging a focus on sense-making and leveraging students’ ideas. Annie is a contributing author of McGraw Hill Education’s new K-5 textbook series, Reveal Math, and works part-time for the 21st Century Partnership for STEM Education, continuing the Math Forum’s research and outreach. Annie’s very first Ignite talk, “Ever Wonder What They’d Notice?", has been used in countless PD sessions around the world.


Professional Development certificates was issued to participants.
