Irving Lubliner (M.A.T., mathematics, ’88) earned his elementary and secondary mathematics teaching credentials at UC Davis in 1976.

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.
