An alumnus of NCSSM, Floyd Bullard earned his bachelor’s degree in applied mathematics from the Johns Hopkins University, his master’s dgree at UNC-Chapel Hill, and his doctorate degree at Duke University. Floyd’s first full-time teaching job was in West Africa as a Peace Corps Volunteer Benin, 1992-94 where he found that his high school French was more useful than he’d ever expected it would be. He taught at the Horace Mann School in New York for two years before beginning his current tenure at NCSSM. While at NCSSM, Floyd has enjoyed being involved in the community of high school and college statistics teachers. He has read AP Statistics exams for several years and has served on the AP Statistics test development committee, and has created and shared numerous statistics classroom activities with other teachers through workshops and on-line bulletin boards. A longtime fan of word puzzles, Floyd is currently trying to learn to construct crossword puzzles himself.
