Occupation Independent Speaker, Researcher
Location Baton Rouge, Louisiana, United States
Introduction I was born and raised in Louisiana, and have traveled extensively, compliments of Uncle Sam (I served in the U.S. Army in Central America, Europe, and in the US). I received my BS in Business Management (summa cum laude, which my dad said must be Latin for "some come late" since it took me so long to get my degree) from University of Maryland after coursework at colleges and universities on three continents (Uncle Sam likes to move us soldiers often!), and went on to receive my Masters and my Certificate Of Education Specialist from Louisiana State University, where I am ABD. I have worked in a variety of positions over the years, and have retired from my job teaching and research as a member of the faculty of the College of Education at Louisiana State University. In addition to my research and teaching at LSU, I also served 16 years as an elected member of the East Baton Rouge Parish School Board. I also served as the President of the Louisiana School Boards Association. My wife and I have two kids, both of whom graduated from our local school system, and both of whom are involved in teaching and coaching!
