Hi, I'm Dave Stuart Jr.

I'm a husband and dad who teaches high schoolers in a small town. I am animated by a simple belief: all students and teachers should flourish. Every article I write, lesson I teach, and book I read is driven by the certainty that that can, and must, happen. I share my work through my email newsletter.

Let's make teaching better.

In my simple weekly emails, I'll help you…

  • Think more clearly about your work in education.
  • Increase your productivity, getting more done in less time.
  • Negotiate the conflicting pressures all educators experience.
  • Make class time the best possible investment toward the long-term flourishing of your students.

Just enter your email below to join my weekly newsletter. As a welcome gift, I’ll send you a free sample from my book, These 6 Things: How to Focus Your Teaching on What Matters Most.
