Mathematics and Psychology

Hello! My name is Barbara McFarland. I began teaching math and psychology at TLC in the fall of 2001. I have a B.S. cum laude in mathematics and a M.Ed. in counseling, both from Tufts University. I taught math from 1971-1979 in Stoneham, Massachusetts. In 1979 I switched careers and began working as a computer programmer and software specification developer, first at the Naval Underwater Systems Center in New London, Connecticut and later at Raytheon Corporation in Newport, Rhode Island. In 1989 my family moved to Austin where I began a stint as a stay at home mom. In 2001, I decided it was time to go back to work doing what I love best – teaching and being surrounded by high school students, my favorite people!
