Mr. Chuck Chuck is Daniel Gulchak, Ph.D.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. As a former classroom teacher for students with emotional and behavioral disorders I enjoy sharing tips that help teachers and students succeed. There is no sense reinventing the wheel in the classroom when so many effective research-based interventions are available. We just need to make sure that evidence-based behavioral interventions are available to everyone and not kept a secret.

I look forward to reading your comments. My website has more information on my research agenda, current position, and publications. I also started the PBISning, join me there.

To quote a mentor,

    What a terrific web site! I love your blogs, and I am not a blog-fan. Thanks for keeping the spirit alive and for helping people in the field access good information and strategies.

    Dr. D,
    Thanks for your post. I will look forward to following your updates and commenting and learning along the way. Social media, being like any other tool in the hands of the user, can be used for gain or loss (good or bad). Since these terms have been boiled down to be weak and relative, it reminds me that the heart of the person using social media is more important than the use of the media itself. That is to say that one post of true significance is obviously worth more than a multitude of meaningless gibberish. At this point, I should conclude my comments. See you online Doctor.

      Thanks for stopping by my blog. I agree that any tool is only as good as the person putting it to use. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

    Thank you for putting this bog out there. I am about to become a first year teacher. My long term goal has been to teach in a self contained EBD classroom. My first experiences working in the school system were as a sub, and I spent a lot of time in our local middle school’s EBD class. The kids were my favorite kids in the whole school. To one day achieve my goals, I went ahead and certified in Middle Grades Social Studies, Mathematics, Science, Language Arts, and Reading. Then I also got certified in Special Education General Curriculum since jobs are scarce here. THEN I was offered a job teaching at a local psycho-educational facility as a teacher in a 5th grade self contained EBD classroom! I have taken the job. It’s my dream job. But I admit to feeling rather overwhelmed. I never thought I would be here so soon and I’m not really sure I’m ready. I enjoy the helpful links and insights found on your blog. Thank you for the time you put into it. If you can think of any other useful sites for me to visit, I would appreciate it!
