Walter E. Regula
The Teacher-in-Training grant is given each year in memory of Dr. Walter E. Regula. Dr. Regula was a professor of mathematics education at Marshall University and an active member of WVCTM at the time of his death in 1975.
Dr. Regula began his teaching career in a one-room schoolhouse in rural Ohio. He eventually taught junior high and high school mathematics, a job he left to pursue his doctorate at Ohio State University. Regula joined the Marshall faculty in 1962. While there, he was instrumental in the development of a mathematics laboratory and he wrote the lab manual that was used by pre-service teachers for several years. He not only taught on campus, but reached teachers in the southern part of the state by teaching extension classes in Logan and Williamson.
Dr. Regula was a dedicated WVCTM member, taking on a leadership role in planning the 1972 annual conference at Marshall University, and serving as NCTM representative (1969 栱970) and president (1972-1974.)
