    Assistant Professor of Mathematics
    Jerry Adams has been teaching at Lee since 1989. He teaches
    Introduction to Probability and Statistics, Algebra, 

    and Numerical Analysis. Adams came to Lee from
    Tomlinson College, where he performed a variety of administrative
    roles, including Academic Dean and Dean of Students. While his
    previous post-graduate studies were in mathematics and higher
    education, he has done additional graduate studies in the field of
    computer science.

    Dr. Blayne Carroll, Professor of
    Mathematics, had been an assistant professor of mathematics and
    computer Science at Berry College, a visiting assistant professor
    of mathematics at Dickinson College, and a Dean's Teaching Fellow
    at Emory University.  He also worked for Educational Testing
    Service developing the SAT, GRE, GMAT, AP Calculus exams.  He
    continues to serve as a consultant with E.T.S. for the GRE, AP
    Calculus, and the Major Field Test in Mathematics programs. He
    earned his PhD in mathematics from Emory University with a
    specialty in Graph Theory and Combinatorics. Carroll is also
    actively involved the Cleveland Community by volunteering for
    various organizations such as Habitat-for Humanity, The American
    Cancer Society, and The Empty Stocking Project, to name a


    Randell Ferguson serves as an
    Associate Lecturer in Mathematics. Prior to Lee, Ferguson worked in
    public schools as both a mathematics teacher, assistant principal,
    principal and secondary supervisor for Bradley County Schools. He
    has also taught mathematics as a part-time faculty member at
    Cleveland State Community College and has been a presenter at the
    PLATO Learning Education and Technology Conference on the use of
    technology for credit recovery and in alternative classrooms. While
    at Lee, Ferguson has focused on improving the effectiveness of
    future educators in the area of mathematics. Most of his work has
    been with those future teachers who wish to teach at the elementary
    school level. He holds a master's degree from the University of
    Tennessee at Chattanooga. 

    Robert Griffith currently serves as
    an Associate Professor of Mathematics. He customarily teaches
    Calculus and Trigonometry. Prior to joining Lee's faculty, he
    taught at Cleveland High School and served as an adjunct faculty
    member at Cleveland State Community College for nineteen years. He
    considers his specialty to be preparing teachers for today's
    schools. He earned his master's degree from the University of
    Tennessee at Knoxville.



    Amanda Jones is a Lecturer in Mathematics and her focus at Lee is 

    core math classes including Introduction to Statistics and 

    Contemporary Mathematics. Prior to Lee, she taught Algebra 

    and Geometry at Cleveland High School and taught Calculus 

    and Introduction to Mathematical Analysis at Clemson 

    University while earning her master's degree in mathematical sciences.  

    Her research is in applied mathematics specifically in the linear 

    programming area of operations research.


    Dr. Caroline Maher-Boulis, an
    Associate Professor of Mathematics, teaches classes such as
    Calculus III, Abstract Algebra, Differential Equations, and
    Financial Mathematics. Prior to joining Lee, Maher-Boulis worked as
    a teaching assistant in the mathematics department at Florida
    State, as a freshman advisor at the American University in Cairo,
    and as a cultural coordinator for the Zenab Kamel Hassan Foundation
    for Holistic Human Development. She earned her PhD from Florida
    State University.


    Dr. Debra Mimbs, an Assistant
    Professor of Mathematics, earned her PhD from the University of
    Alabama. Dr. Mimbs teaches courses about Mathematical Modeling,
    Calculus, and Logic. Her research interests include laminations,
    fractals, and topology. Dr. Mimbs has published research in such
    publications as Transactions of the American Mathematical

    Dr. Jeneva Moseley, an Assistant Professor of Mathematics, was
    formerly a lecturer at the University of Tennessee for seven years.
    She has taught in-service mathematics seminars for public school
    teachers, taught high school math, and taught middle school math at
    a Navajo boarding school. Dr. Moseley also served as adjunct
    faculty at Pellissippi State, Cleveland State, and Tennessee
    Wesleyan College. She earned her PhD at the University of
    Tennessee at Knoxville. Dr. Moseley has published research in such
    publications as the Tennessee Association for Middle Schools
     and PRIMUS: Problems, Resources, and Issues
    in Mathematics Undergraduate Studies


    Dr. Laura Singletary, an Assistant
    Professor of Mathematics, earned her PhD in Mathematics Education
    from the University of Georgia and was awarded the Presidential
    Graduate Fellowship. Her research interests include connections and
    argumentation. She has published research in such publications as
    School Science and Mathematics and Mathematics Educator.
