Mr. David Almand
SKyTeach Master Teacher
Office: TCCW 125A
After 27 years in the public schools, Mr. Almand joined the SKyTeach program as a Master Teacher. He earned B.A. and M.S. degrees in Mathematics -- as well as Rank I Certification in School Administration -- from WKU in the early 1980's, then spent his entire "first career" with the Simpson County Schools in Franklin, KY. During that time, he served as a middle school math teacher (4 years), high school math teacher (12 years), building-level administrator (7 years), and district-level administrator (4 years) before retiring in 2008. Since 1985, he has taught at least one 100- or 200-level course for WKU's Department of Mathematics most semesters, and continues to do so as needed.
When not engaged in academic pursuits, David enjoys traveling (with Hawaii and the Pacific Northwest being his two favorite destinations) and most any sporting event. He officiated high school football for 35 years, and continues to be involved in officiating as an observer for the Ohio Valley Conference, a replay official for the Sun Belt Conference, and a scout for the National Football League. He has also kept the game clock for WKU Men's Basketball games since 1985, and is a proud season ticket holder (and long-suffering fan!) of the NFL's Cleveland Browns.
