Who is Dr. Doug Green?

I have been an educator since 1970. After teaching chemistry, physics, and computer science, I became an administrator for the next 30 years with experience at the secondary, central office, and elementary levels. I have also taught a number of leadership courses for The State University of New York at Cortland and Binghamton University and authored over 300 articles in computer magazines and educational journals. I also recently authored a book, “Teaching Isn’t Rocket Science, It’s Way More Complex”. Click here for the Amazon page and here is a link to an executive summary.

In 2006 I gave up my job as an elementary principal (Woodrow Wilson in Binghamton, NY) to care for my wife who had Lou Gehrig’s disease. After her death in March of 2009, I decided to see how I could use my expertise to help busy educators and parents hone their skills and knowledge. This blog is all about Bite-Sized daily Self-Development for educators and parents. It focuses on book summaries that present the main concepts of important books in about 15 paragraphs. I am active on Twitter @DrDougGreen, and when I find an interesting link or tweet I include it in my daily posts. Working educators and parents don’t always have time to read a lot, but I do. So this is my gift to our common mission to help all children learn. If you think I can help you or your district in any specific way please contact me so we can discuss the matter.

Each year I observe 115+ K-12 teachers in a local school district. Check out my Cup of Joe Podcast on this topic and find out how the teachers are dealing with the pandemic. I also did a Podast for Jabbadu where I talk more generally on education.

I have a BS in Chemistry from Clarkson University, an MA in teaching from Colgate University, a CAS in administration from SUNY Cortland, and an earned doctorate in Educational Theory and Practice from Binghamton University.

    I miss your music. a mole is a number like 7 or 4 like 12 is a dozen of eggs and no more

  6. Thanks for such an uplifting blog. I was widowed in 2001 and know something–but only a little something–of your experience as a caregiver. I have since remarried and found a different meaning in my life. Your cool pix on the boat is such an affirmation! Was not expecting this when I clicked open your blog. Thanks.

    This site is invaluable. The book summaries are a fantastic idea. Do you know of any other people who are doing things similar in creating book summaries? Or ways to find people. It seems there should be a massive demand for such summaries.

    Also, do you have some rules/ method in creating your book summaries. The notes are fantastic and must be a useful part of absorbing the information from a book? If you have any answers are you able to post them on the blog or email me?

    This is a terrific website. I’ll promote it all over. I hope you can handle the traffic! This is truly wonderful and timely. Navigating the world of education reform is difficult for even the most seasoned such as you. Therefore, you have empathy, I’m sure, for all the parents and young educators who are struggling to stay above water. Thank you!

    Dr. Doug,

    What a generous gift to humanity, yes because at the end whatever we learn from you, we will teach it to someone. You are contributing to knowledge enhancement of people you do not even know, specially students in developing countries, who cannot get a book like this in the stores.

    In name of All,

    May the Creator bless your future days withHealth, Peace, LOVE, Harmony, Wisdom and Continued time and pleasure in reading and summarizing books.

    Advertising options

    I hope you’re having a good day.

    We’d want to place article adverts on your website drdouggreen.com, and our content will be relevant to the theme of your website. We’ll include a link to the finance/education website.

    If you’re interested, could you please tell me how much you’ll charge?

    We may still be interested if you don’t accept the above request; please include a rate for general links as well.

    If you have any additional sites to offer, please give a list of them along with their rates.

  17. I get many requests for guest posts. Please let me know what you intend to write about first so I can approve it or not and add my thinking on the topic. Once I approve your pitch I want well-written copy that doesn’t need much editing as I have to spend time converting it to HTML. Try to get someone else to read it if you can as it is often difficult to spot your own errors. Please include a photo or a graphic of some sort and include a brief bio with location (State/Country). Try for something between 500 and 1000 words with subheadings. Include a Twitter name if you have one.

    My audience is composed of parents and educators so pitch an article that would work for them and consider the environment that we are currently living in as context. Your author will need some expertise in the field of education to create content of sufficient quality. The author will also need some skill in researching topics they wish to write on in order to support the main ideas. If your author lacks either of these attributes you need to look elsewhere.

    I’ve also had some negative experiences with people who have English as a second language and have a narrow perspective of a culture outside of the US.

    If you wish to include links that are ads, I charge $50 one time. I do not accept articles that promote writing services intended to do students’ assignments for them.

    I hope everything is going well for you.

    I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce a paid guest post opportunity on your site drdouggreen.com that might be of interest to you. Please let us know if it is possible to publish an article with a link to the finance/education related website or any other form of a link to our website or blog, as well as the cost.

    In case you have any additional sites to offer, please give a list of them along with their rates.

    Thank you for your time and consideration.
