Associate Instructor, USA
D. Tim Morrow is currently the Principal and Coordinator at an alternative school in Hagerstown, Maryland. He has been in education for 31 years. During that time, he has been a teacher, coach, athletic director, assistant principal and principal both in comprehensive schools and alternative educational programs.
Mr. Morrow’s passion is working with what he refers to as “at-promise” youth which others often term “at-risk” youth. He believes every child can learn and succeed but we must remember it may not be on the same day in the same way. As he shares in many of his presentations, relationships are fundamental and behavior is communication. Both in education and our society, we must stop treating the symptoms(behaviors) and start attending to the cause.
Mr. Morrow is not only trained as a Verbal Judo instructor but also utilizes verbal judo every day in the educational setting with all stakeholders. Mr. Morrow feels that Verbal Judo is one of the best tools that an educator can have in their toolbox and recommends anyone in education become trained in Verbal Judo. Verbal Judo when used correctly and with fidelity can result in less suspensions, arrests and placement of students in alternative settings. It can also foster a better community with all stakeholders, including parents.
Mr. Morrow is married with three grown children and four grandchildren. Mr. Morrow also spent time working and volunteering as a paramedic and firefighter in various local communities. In his spare time, Mr. Morrow simply enjoys going camping and spending time with family and friends.
