The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics has hired James M. Rubillo to be its new executive director.

Mr. Rubillo, 60, who was named last month, previously served as an assistant professor of mathematics at the 2,400-student DeSales University in Central Valley, Pa. He has taught mathematics for 37 years at the high school, community college, and university levels, and served as the NCTM’s interim executive director during the 1997-98 school year. The 100,000-member math educators’ group is based in Reston, Va.

Learning in the Real World, a Woodland, Calif.-based nonprofit organization that has been one of the chief critics of the use of technology in schools, has named Alan M. Warhaftig its new coordinator.

In August, Mr. Warhaftig, 46, succeeded William L. Rukeyser, who resigned from the position to become an assistant secretary for the California Environmental Protection Agency.

A high school English teacher at the 298-student Fairfax Magnet Center for the Visual Arts in Los Angeles, Mr. Warhaftig will continue to teach there while serving as coordinator of Learning in the Real World.

Janet B. Bray will be the new executive director of the Association for Career and Technical Education, a 35,000-member national association for educators who teach career and technical skills to students in middle school, high school, and postsecondary institutions. Ms. Bray starts her new job at the Alexandria, Va.-based association on Oct. 1.

Ms. Bray is currently the chief executive officer of the National Association of Enrolled Agents, a Gaithersburg, Md.-based network of 10,000 tax experts.
