Also how did I have more than 100 upvotes all the sudden...
...and @debbie and @The-Rogue-Blade have more than 200 reputations each! Wow
@RZ923 Don't worry about how much reputation each person has... To be honest, I never paid any attention to this, until I had to. Having more reputation doesn't make you better than anyone else.
There have been a ton of websites about Vivien Loh that also mention Debbie.
However, the Debbie lee on Wikipedia is not correct.
There is also a Debbie Lee at Foothill College, but I am not sure that is the correct one.
I think Debbie is Vivian Loh's mom.
@divinedolphin Yes, Debbie is Vivien Loh's mom but I haven't found much info aside from that.
@CoherentMango @RZ923 @divinedolphin Prof. Loh has a wife named Debbie but I don't think the Debbie on this forum is her. I read about an article a long time ago about his daughter, Vivian, winning the Pennsylvania middle school MATHCOUNTS and it stated that Vivian's mother did the teaching. However, even though Ms. Lee has an undergraduate science degree from California Institute of Technology, where she met her husband, she doesn’t have a formal math background. So first, she had to teach it to herself.
“I just started from scratch,” Ms. Lee said. “I would spend like two hours doing one problem so I could teach her — I guess I learned it like a week before she did. Eventually, by the time she was in first or second grade, she was doing most of it herself because I was focusing on her brother.”
So, here is what my conclusion came to:
Reason #1 why Debbie on this forum isn't Prof. Loh's wife-
She does not have a formal math background. @debbie always answers any questions about the courses with clear, concise thinking that lets us understand what the solution is easily. The way that she does this makes me think that she is very familiar with math, if not just the Daily Challenge course structure and information. I'm not saying that Prof. Loh's wife can't do this, but this is a possible reason that is based on my personal opinion.
Ms. Lee likely does not have enough time to do this. She is currently raising 3 children, to my limited knowledge, and I do not believe that she would have time to go over each of our replies, questions, AND create such outstanding posters. Taking care of one child, let alone three, is a lot of work. Therefore, again, I deem it unlikely for Ms. Lee to be Debbie.
Once again, all of this is pure speculation. I do not have any legitimate facts. I am not trying to be offensive or hurt anyone's feelings.
Also, I think we should stop talking about this because it does seem pretty nosy
Her status is literally "I like small people" raising 3 children doesn't take every moment of your life besides she doesn't answer right after we ask she's only on sometimes
"I like small people"
@sqwishy What is the chance that Prof. Loh's wife is named Debbie and the one on this forum made by Prof. Loh is also known as Debbie?
I could be wrong, but I doubt that raising three children will really take that much time (Unless Debbie has other things to do).
Also, even though she might not have a formal math background, she did teach herself math. I believe that Debbie could learn this because it is only for middle school competitions. Also, the website states that Debbie taught her kids math so she must have had some teaching experience.
Debbie's location is Pittsburg and even though I could not find where Prof. Loh lives, I did find that Carnegie Mellon University(The place that Prof. Loh teaches) is also located in Pittsburg.
I could be wrong because I'm not a stalker and I don't plan to trace her IP address and fly to her.
