Today, we’d like to send a special note of congratulations to Carol Malloy, a McGraw-Hill School Education author who tomorrow will be honored with the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics’ 2013 lifetime achievement award.

A McGraw-Hill Education author for 17 years, Carol has helped improve the quality of mathematics instruction for teachers and students across the country. Carol began working with us in the mid-'90s as an author of our Algebra program for the high school math market.

Here’s what NCTM had to say about Carol and her outstanding work:

Carol Malloy has been a voice and a leader in mathematics education throughout her groundbreaking career. For more than four decades, the mathematics education community has felt her strong presence as a role model and an exemplar of the power of sincerity, grace, persistence, and action.

“Dr. Malloy challenged me to think more deeply and critically about mathematics and the teaching of mathematics,” recalled one nominator. “She has a way of pushing and stretching you intellectually to a point where you are amazed at your own growth as a scholar and thinker.”

As a small token of our appreciation for her continued partnership and ongoing support of the mathematics community, we’re throwing a reception for her today at our booth at the NCTM conference from 11 a.m. until noon. If you’re attending the conference, do stop by and say hello.

Join us in congratulating Carol on her award and in thanking her for all of her many contributions to education!
