Discovering a natural ability in mathematics at an early age made it an easy choice for Dr. Hall to become an educator in the subject. In her own academic pursuits, Dr. Hall first earned a Bachelor of Arts at the University of Delaware in 1964 and later a Master of Arts in mathematics in 1969 from the institution. She later received a Master of Arts and PhD in history of sciences from the University of Maryland in 1995 and 2002, respectively. In her career, Dr. Hall originally started out as a mathematics teacher at the Oak Grove Junior High School and the Annapolis Junior High School. She started teaching at the University of Delaware part-time before the department chairman, who was impressed with her work, offered her a full-time position at the Georgetown location. After teaching part-time at the institution, she became an assistant professor in 1983 and later became an associate professor in 2002.
Supplementing Dr. Hall’s career is a number of professional affiliations. She has been a member of the American Association of the Advancement of Science, the History of Science Society, the Philosophy of Science Association and the American Statistical Association. On a civic level, she has been engaged with the Carolina County Council of Arts. Dr. Hall feels the her success is based on her students being able to walk away understanding what they were taught.
