Kennesaw State University Professor of Mathematics Education Lynn Stallings understands the challenges facing today’s math teachers, having begun her career at DeKalb County’s Dunwoody High 26 years ago.
Although she began her higher education career at Georgia State University in 1995 as assistant professor of mathematics education, Stallings always remained committed to helping her secondary education colleagues.
Stallings recently received the Gladys M. Thomason Distinguished Service Award from the Georgia Council of Teachers of Mathematics (GCTM) for distinguished service in the field of mathematics education at the local, regional and state levels.
In bestowing the honor, the GCTM noted Stallings’ significant service toward the improvement of mathematics instruction. 
A former GCTM president, she currently serves as an executive committee member, and has served as webmaster and conference coordinator. In 2007, she was presented the GCTM’s John Neff Award for “excellence at the post-secondary or district level as an inspirer, a mentor and an advocate of mathematics and mathematics instruction.”
Stallings joined the Kennesaw State faculty in August 2000 and served as chair of the Department of Mathematics and Statistics in the College of Science and Mathematics from July 2008 to July 2011. The interim associate dean for Graduate Studies for the Bagwell College of Education, Stallings also was a member of the Georgia Department of Education Mathematics Advisory Committee from 2007 to 2011.
Stallings earned a bachelor’s in education and a master’s in mathematics education from Auburn University. She received her doctorate in mathematics education from the University of Georgia in 1995.
