Recognized as an "Outstanding Person in Education," Dave Foley is the expert thousands of educators and administrators across the nation have turned to for help on getting their classrooms under control. He is a leading classroom management coach, an award-winning educator, and an engaging presenter.
Foley's expertise is grounded in the 29 years of experience he had teaching English and social studies at junior high and middle schools in Cadillac, Michigan. Like all teachers, Foley faced daily behavioral challenges from students. Because of his ability to address these issues through innovative and effective classroom management techniques, Foley has earned acclaim as an exceptional educator. As an author and career management coach, Foley shares these solutions with novice teachers and veteran educators who, despite being highly trained and experienced, struggle to run a chaos-free classroom.
As a result of his success in the classroom, as well as the vast improvement of educators he's trained, Foley has been invited to present numerous workshops and conferences, including appearances at the National Tech Prep Network Conference, Student Teacher Fire-Up Conference, Michigan Association of Secondary School Principals Conference, and Michigan Elementary and Secondary Principals Association Conference. In addition, Foley's advice has been featured several times in magazines published by the National Education Association.
Foley holds a master's degree in Guidance and Counseling from Michigan State University and has countless hours of experience dealing with adolescents in non-academic settings. He coached varsity cross country for 27 years and varsity track for nine years. Before becoming a teacher, Foley worked as a camp counselor. He has recently returned to the camp setting, where he presents workshops to camp staff designed to help them deal effectively with camper behavior problems.
