We are educators with almost 50 years of combined years of education experience in a wide array of educational arenas. Our hope is to research and share education news of the day, personal experiences, interesting educational stories, and invite other educators to share their own stories and experiences,. Our goal is other educators, parents, students and anyone interested in education will get a sense of what's going on in our ever-changing education landscape. Hopefully we will inform and engage you, and even have a laugh or two.
Tim is the K-12 Curriculum Director at Kendall Hunt Publishing Company. Previously, he was a high school teacher of many subjects and principal on the Navajo Reservation before leaving the classroom to work in curriculum design and professional development at the Charles A. Dana Center at the University of Texas at Austin. From there he went to Key Curriculum Press, which was eventually sold to Kendall Hunt.
In my spare time, I do almost exactly what I do for a living but for a great non-profit, Teachers 2 Teachers Global, in developing countries. Tim currently lives in Dubuque, Iowa, with his beautiful wife and some amount of children (I think 5, but I can lose count).
Dr. Karen Greenhaus
Currently an educational 'gun-for-hire', Karen taught middle and high school mathematics in several public schools in Virginia, became a district math supervisor for a couple years, and then was lured into the wild and crazy world of educational publishing and professional development when Tim came calling from Key Curriculum. When Tim left to go to Kendall Hunt with the books, Karen stayed on with Key to focus on their fabulous dynamic math technology until that too was acquired by McGraw-Hill Education. Acquisition life was not all it was cracked up to be, so after a brief time with MHE, Karen left to finish her doctorate and afterwards decided to take a leap of faith and start her own educational consulting business back in 2014. It must be going ok, as she still works from home in her pajamas when she's not traveling the world training teachers, teaching online with Drexel University and serving as a consultant to various educational companies.
Since work-life and home-life are basically one and the same when you work from home, when Karen is NOT doing work you can find her on her porch in Doylestown, PA with her husband or at the beach in Sea Isle City, NJ. Her two daughters, both recently graduated from college, did not get the empty-nest memo, hence the need for the beach.
