ABOUT THE AUTHOR -- Francis (Frank) Sganga received his B.S. and M.A. degrees at the University of Florida where, as a graduate student, he taught for two years. After working with the U.S. Corps of Engineers for two years, he succumbed to an urge to teach, and wound up spending six years teaching at the high school level. Teachers salaries being what they were, and still are, he decided his income was insufficient for a family of five, and moved into administration. After three years, his superiors promoted him to the position of Mathematics Supervisor. In his supervisory role he spent a good deal of his time teaching gifted students at the middle school level, as well as conducting in-service workshops for their teachers. He never allowed his penchant for teaching to lie fallow.
