Independent Business Affiliate

Business Location: Worcester, MA

Background Information

John earned his Doctorate Degree (Doctor of Education in Education Leadership) at the University of Phoenix. John’s doctoral dissertation, entitled, “BULLIED TEACHERS SHOW EMPATHY TOWARD THEIR STUDENTS: A HERMENEUTICAL STUDY”, addressed the complex nature and effect of teachers who experienced their employment as educators in a hostile work environment.

Also, his education includes a Master of Education in Educational Leadership from Cambridge College and a Bachelor of Science., Psychology; Minor., Secondary Education from Worcester State College. John has extensive certifications and experience in public education; including teaching, administration, and coaching.

Business Description

John provides research, writing, pre-litigation, advocacy and consulting services to individual teachers facing wrongful terminations. Wrongful employment terminations are extremely complex and, therefore, require a great deal of analysis and identification of facts in order to determine (a) whether a viable "case" exists pursuant to the recovery of damages, and (b) the identification of viable strategies and resources that might be utilized to pursue any such recovery. Additionally, John also consults to both employees and employers alike with respect to issues involving exposure to, or the prevention of, hostile work environments in Massachusetts.
