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 popular email newsletter.

My weekly emails will show you how to…

  • 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.

About Dave Stuart Jr.

I write about literacy instruction, student motivation, and the inner work of teaching. I speak about my work through keynotes and workshops at conferences and school-based events around the USA, and over 35,000 people read my articles each month. I've published one traditional book and multiple digital resources, seeking to share the things that most help me as a teacher.
