Authors Who Inspire

My path has been filled with many mentors and advisors. As an avid reader I have books everywhere and it was difficult to narrow down those authors that most influenced my thinking. There certainly were many more authors who influenced my thinking and supported me on my path, but I chose the authors that best fit the lesson themes to stay focused on the message of this book.

Legacy Teachers – Pay it forward!

One of the saddest things about U.S. education is that the wisdom of our most successful teachers is lost to the profession when they retire.

My Writing Journey

This is my story. My purpose in sharing it with you is to encourage you to think of yourself as a writer so you can share your ideas with others. Teachers often ask me why I decided to write and publish books. As I reflect back I see that each book has its own story and reason for emerging. I never thought of myself as a writer and never imagined it as a goal. In fact, I wasn’t even sure I liked writing and sharing my ideas with other people.
