AP Statistics with Josh Tabor

Josh Tabor has been a grader of the AP Statistics exam since 1999, a table leader from 2001–2006, and a question leader from 2007–2019. He also served on the AP Statistics Test Development Committee from 2005–2009. In 2013, he was named to the SAT Mathematics Development Committee. Josh is the co-author of The Practice of Statistics 6e for AP Statistics, and the author of the Annotated Teacher’s Edition for The Practice of Statistics 4e and 5e.  He is also the co-author of two on-level statistics textbooks: Statistical Reasoning in Sports, which introduces students to the concepts of statistical reasoning in a simulation-based, student-friendly manner and Statistics and Probability with Applications, which features short, direct lessons that make teaching and learning statistics enjoyable for both teachers and students. Josh has presented at regional, national, and international conferences and has taught one-day and week-long AP Statistics workshops for many years. He enjoys the opportunity to share his love of statistics and learn from the experiences of participants.

AP Calculus with Bryan Passwater
Bryan Passwater has trained, mentored and supported over 1000 AP calculus teachers around the country. Bryan has led dozens of 1-day, 2-day and week long AP workshops from San Francisco to New York City and has been an AP reader since 2013.  He is passionate about teaching AP calculus and is highly motivated to provide great trainings, support, resources and encouragement to AP Calculus teachers everywhere.  In 2017, Bryan decided to go back to the classroom full time and currently teaches AP Calculus AB, AP Calculus BC, and pre-calculus in Indianapolis, Indiana.  Bryan was a member of the College Board’s AP Calculus Instructional Design Committee committed to providing the support that AP Calculus teachers need to build and grow a successful AP Calculus classroom.

“Math and science principles are heavily ingrained in today’s jobs, as well as jobs of the future,” Arkansas Department of Education Secretary Johnny Key said. “In order to be prepared for the workforce, exceptional teachers in these fields are critical to success. I am happy to congratulate Ms. Hatch and Ms. Murray for receiving these presidential awards. This recognition is among the highest in the STEM field, and these two outstanding educators are well deserving of this honor.”
Each year math and science educators are nominated on the state level. State finalists then have the potential to receive national recognition. A national committee comprised of scientists, mathematicians, and educators reviews all state finalists and recommends up to 108 teachers to receive PAEMST awards in mathematics, science, and computer science. Winners are chosen from each state, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. territories, and schools operated in the United States and overseas by the Department of Defense Education Activity.
