Biography
Carol Flannery has been teaching math and statistics in college and universities for more than thirty years. She has produced and appeared in math tutoring videos, and was a guest on the children’s television show, Mr. Peppermint, in which she was teaching the concept of volume to Muffin the Bear and Jingles the Dragon. Carol has always been eager to share her enthusiasm for learning math. Along with developing curriculum for area business and industry, she has also created workshops to attract more people into the fields of science and mathematics. Her hobbies include photography and learning more about conservation of wildlife, serving as Texas Director of the Elsa Wild Animal Appeal. Her association with the Appeal provided the opportunity to travel to Kenya and Tanzania, and meet the organization’s founder, author Joy Adamson (Born Free, Living Free, et al). The two became friends and Carol was able to witness first-hand some of the activities with one of Joy’s last animal rehabilitation projects involving Penny the Leopard. Carol’s other hobbies include woodworking and she is also an accomplished guitarist. She earned her Masters and Doctoral degrees from Texas A&M at Commerce and has been teaching for the University of Texas at Dallas since 1995.
