Barry Woods began teaching at Unity College in 1976. A native New Yorker and a die-hard New York Yankees fan, Barry earned his graduate and undergraduate degrees from the State University of New York at Plattsburgh, where he majored in both mathematics and education.
At Unity College, Barry teaches primarily Statistics courses. His current interest is the integration of technology into the teaching of his stats courses. From the use of hand-held calculators to computers, Barry encourages his students to be active learners and to take a proactive role in their own education. In 1989 Barry’s faculty colleagues awarded him the first Martin A. Rosinski Award for excellence in teaching.
Off campus, Barry has served as an AP-Statistics Reader and as an educational consultant for the College of the Marshall Islands and the Northern Marianas College in Saipan. In Maine, Barry has served on the Board of Directors for Operation Game Thief. OGT is a private, non-profit organization that works in cooperation with the Maine Warden Service.
