During his 33 years as an educator, Bob Sullo
worked as an English teacher, a school psychologist, an adjustment counselor, and an administrator in the Plymouth Public Schools in Plymouth, Massachusetts. These diverse roles gave him the opportunity to work in both regular education and special education, serving students from prekindergarten through graduation in elementary, middle, and high school.
Currently an educational consultant and instructor for the William Glasser Institute, Bob has provided staff development and parent workshops in more than 30 states. His presentations focus on internal motivation, responsibility, and the creation of a positive environment where students are inspired to produce high-quality academic work. Bob's previous books include Teach Them to Be Happy
(New View Publications, 1989), Inspiring Quality in Your School: From Theory to Practice (NEA Professional Library, 1997), Activating the Desire to Learn (ASCD, 2007), Managing to Inspire: Bringing Out the Best in Those You Supervise (iUniverse, 2007), and The Inspiring Teacher: Making a Positive Difference in Students' Lives (NEA Professional Library, 2008).
