educators: school administrators, teachers, future teachers & people who work with youth at nonprofits
After college, Greg took a year to work as a public school substitute teacher. One year turned into seven. Along the way, he started a weekend mentoring program. Over the years, he also has served as a guest lecturer or Scholar-in-Residence for schools & programs in different countries. He has been featured by media such as Education Week & received honors like the Jefferson Award for Public Service. The books based on Greg's story have received kind reviews from media such as Teacher Information Network as well as many educators & school administrators. In some cases, the books have been required reading in courses for future educators. The books also have been used with current professionals (e.g. schools, camps & youth-serving nonprofits getting copies for staff). SCROLL DOWN
