About the Author:

John Spencer uses the term "not-so-master teacher" to describe himself. On some level, it's true. He's never won the Teacher of the Year Award. He's flawed. He's human. But it's his openness about these flaws that make his writing accessible. Despite his mistakes, John has done amazing things with his students. They create documentaries, run a high-quality, indepth social studies multimedia magazine, paint murals and engage in frequent community service. In addition, he has experience teaching professional development. His development of Teacher Commons help him to earn the Northern Arizona University Graduate Student of the Year Award. John has experience teaching semester-long professional development as well as short-term workshops and presentations. John lives with his wife Christy and their two sons, Joel and Micah. (They have a little girl on the way) He enjoys blogging, long-distance running, cooking and smashing oranges with baseball bats from their somewhat shabby and all-too-suburban backyard in Glendale (near Phoenix), Arizona. Okay, on that last one, he gets a lot of help from his sons.
