1988 - Irving Lubliner

December 04, 2015
Irving Lubliner (M.A.T., mathematics, ’88) earned his elementary and secondary mathematics teaching credentials at UC Davis in 1976. Although Lubliner completed his coursework in 1976, he fulfilled the last requirement for his M.A.T. degree in 1988. Lubliner taught at middle schools in Novato, Berkeley and Oakland for 31 years. In 2006 Lubliner joined the Department of Mathematics at Southern Oregon University, specializing in mathematics education. In 2014 he retired and was awarded emeritus status. During his career as a teacher, speaker and consultant, Lubliner delivered more than 350 presentations at conferences and in-service training events. He wrote that the training and mentoring he received in the M.A.T. program at UC Davis were invaluable to him as a mathematics educator. Professor Evelyn Silvia, an advocate for K-12 education, had a particularly profound and enduring influence on him, Lubliner wrote.
