Who is Dr. Doug Green?

I have been an educator since 1970. After teaching chemistry, physics, and computer science, I became an administrator for the next 30 years with experience at the secondary, central office, and elementary levels. I have also taught a number of leadership courses for The State University of New York at Cortland and Binghamton University and authored over 300 articles in computer magazines and educational journals. I also recently authored a book, “Teaching Isn’t Rocket Science, It’s Way More Complex”. Click here for the Amazon page and here is a link to an executive summary.

In 2006 I gave up my job as an elementary principal (Woodrow Wilson in Binghamton, NY) to care for my wife who had Lou Gehrig’s disease. After her death in March of 2009, I decided to see how I could use my expertise to help busy educators and parents hone their skills and knowledge. This blog is all about Bite-Sized daily Self-Development for educators and parents. It focuses on book summaries that present the main concepts of important books in about 15 paragraphs. I am active on Twitter @DrDougGreen, and when I find an interesting link or tweet I include it in my daily posts. Working educators and parents don’t always have time to read a lot, but I do. So this is my gift to our common mission to help all children learn. If you think I can help you or your district in any specific way please contact me so we can discuss the matter.

Each year I observe 115+ K-12 teachers in a local school district. Check out my Cup of Joe Podcast on this topic and find out how the teachers dealt with the pandemic. I also did a Podast for Jabbadu where I talk more generally on education.

I have a BS in Chemistry from Clarkson University, an MA in teaching from Colgate University, a CAS in administration from SUNY Cortland, and an earned doctorate in Educational Theory and Practice from Binghamton University.
