Mr. Burrow has received several other honors; among them being nominated twice (most recently in 2004) for the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics Teaching and winning the Bernard and Thelma Meister Award for Excellence in Education. In 1997 he received an award for "Leadership in Mathematics Reform" for serving as a demonstration classroom teacher for the Lakeland Area Education Agency, and in 2001 he received a citation for volunteerism from the state of Iowa. Perhaps his highest honors have been when former students have mentioned him as someone who made a difference in their lives.
Mr. Burrow is also a member of the Phi Delta Kappa honorary fraternity in education. He has spoken at several mathematics and education conferences. His article on the Iowa Communications Network fiber optics system was published in the Fall, 1996 ICTM Journal, and he has co-authored at least five other journal articles. He was also co-author of the 1999 book Teaching on Television, for which he received part of a Title III "Strengthening Instruction" grant from the U.S. Department of Education to produce the book.
