An American Educator
By Dr. Thomas Blackwell
After being an educator for over 40 years in the American public school system, Dr. Thomas Blackwell has more than a few stories to tell. The middle school where Dr. Blackwell primarily taught, comes with its own list of unique circumstances and challenges that he is very familiar with. This memoir begins with a tender retelling of Blackwell’s own childhood, and how often he was a middle school menace to his parents and teachers alike! Everything in his life has formed and shaped him into the man he is today, a passionate and dedicated educator with a desire to affect young lives.
