Hello Dear Reader, my name is Michael! Thank you for stopping by my blog. My initial post explains my motivation behind starting this page. In one word it’s accountability. My day job right now is teaching high school math. I hope to some day make a living from telling incredible stories through writing screenplays that people want to make into movies. I have a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from Barat College of DePaul, a master’s in Teacher Leadership from the University of Illinois at Springfield, and a second master’s in Educational Supervision and Administration from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. I met my high school sweetheart and best friend in 1993, married her in 2000, and have four beautiful children together. When I’m not teaching, writing, or spending time with my family, I can be found coaching football and baseball or watching movies of course!
