The College of Charleston has two of the country's best undergraduate teachers, according to The Princeton Review's new book, The Best 300 Professors. Spanish professor Devon Hanahan and mathematics professor Martin Jones are two of 300 professors that represent the top .02% of the roughly 1.8 million post-secondary teachers instructing students at colleges and universities across the United States. They were chosen from an initial list of 42,000 professors.

Martin Jones received his Ph.D. in Mathematics from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 1989 specializing in probability and stochastic processes. Since then he has been teaching at the College of Charleston where he oversees the undergraduate and graduate statistics programs. Martin lived and taught mathematics in Venezuela for two years and in Costa Rica for one year. He regularly teaches statistics workshops in Nicaragua, El Salvador and Mexico. He is a vegan, plays jazz flute and has no TV, no cell phone and no car.

The Princeton Review editors say, "He is realistic about students' perceptions of math (even if they are only superficial), and he uses this awareness in his teaching approach, which is "very animated, high-energy, but quite informal and relaxed."

The featured professors are in more than 60 fields ranging from accounting to neuroscience to sports management. They hail from 122 colleges and universities across the nation.
