Robert Ward

Robert Ward is currently in his twenty-fourth year of teaching English at public middle schools in Los Angeles. He is also the author of two powerful books for teachers published by Rowman and Littlefield: The Firm, Fair, Fascinating Facilitator and its companion workbook, The Teacher Tune-Up.

Robert's latest book, A Teacher's Inside Advice to Parents: How Children Thrive with Leadership, Love, Laughter, and Learning, joins parents and teachers as allies in education and partners in the nurturing of children. This book was the #1 New Release in Parent Participation in Education on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Robert-Ward/e/B0189PQ3J4

Robert's articles have been featured by Edutopia, Education Week, the U.S. Department of Education's "Teacher's Edition" newsletter, ASCD, NCTE, the International Literacy Association, and UKEdChat magazine.

Robert embraces a whole-child teaching approach that attends to each student's social, emotional, soulful, and academic needs. Since all four aspects of child development are equally important and inextricably intertwined, teachers must daily rouse and ready their students' hearts, hopes, minds, and manners. This crucial balance creates a classroom of willingness, wisdom, wonder, warmth, and worth!
