Our Story

A Personal Stake in Education


I was sitting in my family room on March 5th, 2000, a rare day off from my job as the treatment director for a residential program for teens, when I heard the news. A first grader shot and killed another six year old and like the rest of the world, I was mortified. It was that day I vowed to use my unique blend of psychology and education backgrounds to create my own brand of whole school transformation.

Nearly twenty years later, with six books, numerous speaking engagements, and consulting with all levels of education worldwide, I feel close to realizing my dream of improving the organizational health of every school on the globe. From my early work on school violence prevention to my current project of integrating personal growth with professional development, I am privileged to support the most important profession on the planet- educators.

The TeacherCoach project is intended to save schools nationwide over 64 billion dollars by making professional development FREE. Beyond this ambitious goal is to provide schools the opportunity to become self-sustaining by providing a meaningful revenue stream through the project.

TeacherCoach is an online training medium for educators. TeacherCoach provides both personal growth and professional development opportunities through coaching and courses, allowing learners to customize their objectives. We offer skills, support, tools, strategy, problems solving, and general self-improvement. You can even supplement your income by creating your own course.

There are many life lessons we provide that can help people to live more satisfying lives. Within hours, a person can begin to apply the learning from our online classes to home, family, work, and one's own health. For the more complex issues, personal coaching or life coaching as it's often referred, may be more fitting.

Our mission is to teach people independence in solving most if not all of life's challenges.
