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 mentoring program & a foundation. 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 (i.e. Teacher Information Network), educators & school administrators. In some cases, the books have been required reading in a course for future educators (i.e. St. John's University School of Education). The books also have been used with current professionals (i.e. schools & youth-serving nonprofits getting The First Thirty or The Silhouette Man for all-staff common reads). SCROLL DOWN
Greg has been part of professional development events &/or parent events for schools & youth-serving nonprofits. He has spoken at conferences & institutes for school administrators, current educators &/or staff at youth-serving nonprofits (i.e. Durham Association of Educators; Quebec Provincial Association of Teachers). He also has guest lectured &/or spoken at events for future educators (i.e. North Carolina Teaching Fellows Junior Conference; Boston University School of Education Pinning Ceremony). In some cases, an organization (i.e. Texas Association of Secondary School Principals) has Greg speak at an event, and they get the books for their attendees. In other cases, an organization (i.e. Arkansas Department of Education) has gotten copies of the Legacy Poem Posters for educators &/or staff at youth-serving nonprofits.
KRISTIN KOENIGSFEST, ARKANSAS STEM COALITION: "If Erin Brockovich worked at a school instead of a law firm...[The Silhouette Man is] a story that reinforces what can happen when someone is determined to make a difference."
