Marylu "Mac" (McCarthy) Briggs. Mac was recognized
this year as Hackettstown and Warren County Teacher of the Year and
was runner-up for New Jersey State Teacher of the Year honors, which
were announced at a December luncheon by the New Jersey State Department

widely varying challenges to realize that math is everywhere. Her many
contributions outside the classroom have included coaching basketball,
coaching and officiating field hockey and serving last year as co-chair
of the school district's Middle States Accreditation Team. Last summer
Mac received a fellowship for an Earthwatch project collecting data
about butterflies in Costa Rica. On Nov. 2, 2001, Mac and several other
