About the Author

After working in private and public and home school education for over twenty years, John realized the great need in American society to promote independent and critical thinking through open and thoughtful discussion of history. His wife Zdenka, born and raised in Czechoslovakia, saw that nowhere could she find fun games that taught history. John and Zdenka founded The Classical Historian (www.classicalhistorian.com) to fill these two voids. Their materials are inspired by the best that is offered in the Western tradition of education: openness, analysis, healthy competition in games, respect towards opposing viewpoints, recognition of an absolute truth, and academic honesty. John has an M.A. in Humanities, a Czech Language Certificate from Charles University in Prague, Czechoslovakia, and a Deutsch als Fremdsprache Zertifikat from the Goethe Institute, Germany. In the 1990s, John lived and taught in Germany, Austria, Turkey, and Czechoslovakia. Returning to the U.S.A. in 1996, he has been teaching middle school history and English in Santa Ana, California, where he earned his Certification by the National Board of Professional Teachers, an honor held by 1% of America's teachers. Married happily for 21 years, John and his wife Zdenka home school their seven children in San Clemente, California.
