George Lucas Educational Foundation

Richard Curwin

Director, Graduate Program in Behavior Disorder, David Yellin College

I am the author or coauthor of about 20 books related to behavior and motivation, including Discipline With Dignity and Meeting Students Where They Live: Motivation in Urban Schools. I have done training in educational environments worldwide and now have settled in Israel to live near my children and grandchildren. I write occasional editorials for The Jerusalem Post and continue to love teaching. My students include Jewish, Muslim, and Christian teachers from all sectors of Israel who work well together and all pray for peace in the Holy Land.
