About Me

I’ve recently retired after 32 years of service to young people in public schools in Missouri. My career included teaching high school math and science, serving as curriculum coordinator, assistant high school principal, and five years as assistant superintendent. I have also taught in college level teacher preparation programs.

I continue to help people grow through their own personal learning. When not blogging, I  research and write for professional publications and serve as a consultant with the North Central division of AdvancEd.  I provide professional services to educational and other non-profit organizations, especially in the area of organizational improvement. I also enjoy presenting and speaking at professional conferences and workshops.

Feel free to contact me at any time at mprater52@gmail.com.  I am always happy to hear from anyone interested in helping people achieve their dreams and goals. My best wishes are with you.


Mike Prater, Ed.D.
