Nancy Larson, author of the nationally successful Saxon Math K–4 programs, has been dedicated to education for more than 30 years. She works closely with classroom teachers to create developmentally appropriate and content-rich materials that are effective and easy to implement. She brings passion and experience to her role as author and publisher.
Ms. Larson started Nancy Larson Publishers, Inc. in 2003 with the goal of providing engaging and challenging programs in content areas beyond mathematics. The company’s first release was the Nancy Larson Science K–5 program.
“In today’s time-conscious environment, teachers need effective programs that are easy to implement and rewarding to teach,” said Larson. “I believe the development teams at Nancy Larson Publishers have accomplished this goal with our new science programs.”
In addition to being an author, Larson taught mathematics at the middle school and high school levels, coordinated a K–12 mathematics program, instructed at the graduate level, served as a Title 1 director, and served as an expert reviewer for several publications. She consults with teachers all over the country and presents workshops on a national, regional, state, and local level.
Larson earned her bachelor’s degree in mathematics and elementary education and a master’s degree in special education. She is a certified professional educator and has a sixth-year certificate in advanced study in administration and supervision. She is an active member of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM).
Nancy’s dedication to education and to motivating and inspiring young educators led her to form the Nancy Larson Foundation in 2006. Ever grateful for her personal success, she is dedicated to giving back in a way that promotes education in America. For more information and official rules, click here.
