"Anger in the Classroom will help teachers figure out the causes of anger and how to prevent it. Lots of good case studies." --Temple Grandin
A teacher with classroom experience over a period of years will naturally grow as an effective teacher. A teacher who does this with increased attention will be able to grow more quickly and fully. A teacher who adds to this, intention and self-study, will grow rapidly, and surpass the natural limits each of us has built-in. The real transformation may begin--along with a richness that might at times seem extraordinary, for both student and teacher.

About the Author
After receiving a BA in Mathematics, Glenn went on to earn an MS in Special Education. Throughout his career he has held a variety of educational positions such as: director of a small private school, founder/director of a learning center for all ages, board member of several private schools, and co-creator of a private school for students with high-functioning autism in New York State.
Glenn enjoys both teaching and learning in many forms and continues to discover new interests and passions to share with others. He has taught varied subjects in numerous settings over a wide range of disciplines, including: multiple academic subjects for all ages; the preparation of graduate students for teacher certification in both general and special education; the fine art of stone carving (sculpting with teens and adults in such materials as marble, alabaster, Persian onyx, and African wonderstone); technical rock climbing with teens across the US east coast; movement and dance with teens in New York City; and school navigation for students struggling with academic, emotional, and social aspects of their educational lives.
The creation of this book continues this trajectory for Glenn. He shares, in its writing, aspects of what he has learned over decades of classroom teaching and individualized education, as well as teaching "in the field." He understands that the passion of teaching is closely linked to the passion of learning, and indeed the only way for either to remain alive is for both to be engaged and vital.
