Teresa Tallman graduated in 1975 from Iowa State University with a degree (Bachelor of Science) in Chemical Engineering. She worked for 35 years for a major manufacturing company. During her career, her view of statistics grew from apprehension to love. She began sharing the concepts with her young grandchildren and the idea for the Hear the Word series was born. Teresa and her husband live in Phoenix, Arizona. She loves animals, art and anything in nature…even the creepy crawly spiders living in the Southwest. Her heartfelt wish is that you never stop learning and have Fun with Statistics!
