Trusted Teaching, Learning and Parenting Resource since 1999

Welcome to the Education Coffeehouse, a trusted source on the web since 1999.

If you have landed here, it may be because you are in search of ideas on how to resolve an education issue as a teacher, parent or student. Welcome to the answers you have been seeking! More than 20 years of teaching, learning, and parenting experience is what you will find on these pages. This is Tyler, our youngest son and the face of the Education Coffeehouse since he was just a toddler. As you can see, he is no longer a child; he graduated high school in May 2014 and is now attending my alma mater, Indiana University, Bloomington, IN.


I am honored to share the tips and techniques used to help my own two children and hundreds of former students achieve their learning goals. Throughout these pages, I share wisdom obtained through research and nearly 25 years of teaching and administrative experience on ground and online, in traditional and vocational settings, with secondary students and adults. I also modeled many parenting techniques on my classroom materials and am pleased to share that information here.

What you can find here is "straight talk" on issues related to learning and how parents can serve as their child's best educational advocate. There is something here for all education stakeholders:

Educators will find information on how to engage challenging students, a non-confrontational classroom management plan, and soon, a library of the communications I have had with my students over the past two decades. It can be difficult to know what to say in some circumstances. I hope this will help you find the right words you need for any number of circumstances and situation.

Parents and guardians will find helpful information on how to be effective educational advocates for their children, discipline ideas to encourage educational success, and tips on how to prepare children for success, inside and out;

Students will find strategies for success, how to locate learning resources online, and enjoy learning for the sake of learning;

Writers can brush up on challenges they face in putting words to paper. There is even a link to manuals for all known citation formats.

Learning should be challenging but not frustrating. I am happy to provide these stress-free suggestions for making your journey to success one to enjoy!
