The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview Daniel Blanchard.
Dan Blanchard the Award Winning Author, Speaker, Educator two-time Junior Olympian Wrestler, and two-time Junior Olympian Wrestling Coach grew up as a student-athlete. However, Dan admits that as a youth he was more of an athlete than a student. Dan has now successfully completed fourteen years of college and has earned seven degrees. He teaches Social Studies in Connecticut’s largest inner-city high school. In addition, Dan is a Teacher Consultant for the University of Connecticut’s Writing Project. He was chosen by the American Federation of Teachers as their face and voice of educational reform. Because Dan’s students repeatedly asked him to write a book to tell others what he tells them, Dan finally listened and has now authored two dynamic teen leadership books, Granddaddy’s Secrets: Feeling Lucky? and Granddaddy’s Secrets: Feeling Good. His third book of the Granddaddy’s Secrets series, Feeling Strong! will be out next year. As an educator, coach, author, and speaker Dan feels that it is his duty to positively influence our youth every chance that he gets! He lives with his wife, Jennifer, their five children, and family dog, Daisy and is available for speaking engagements.

The truth about relationships is simply a question of which one you are working on. The relationship between a husband and wife, boyfriend, girlfriend or significant others is not the same as a relationship between a parent and child a teacher and a student or even a parent and one child. Learning to separate these relationships can go a very long way to not only better understanding them but also better understanding yourself.
