Tracy Watson, portrait
Assistant Professor of Instruction
Morton 519, Athens Campus


  • Master of Science, Mathematics, Ohio University 1993
  • Bachelor of Science, Mathematics, Millersville University 1991


As a lover of mathematics, I have worked as a "sharer of mathematics knowledge" since 1989 in a variety of roles including university faculty, virtual teacher, high school teacher, and mathematics specialist. Alongside this passion is an interest in sharing how to use educational technology appropriately in the classroom as a consultant for Texas Instruments. The highlight of my career is returning to the Mathematics Department at Ohio University as a faculty member and being able to teach alongside my husband Corey Boby. This is so special because we began our life together as graduate students in the department. We live in Coolville, Ohio, with our seven dogs. We love to ride our motorcycle, pink Jeep, and fish on the weekends.
