About the Author

Rich Stowell teaches educational and mathematics at the university level. He is the author of the book, Nine Weeks: a teacher's education in Army Basic Training, and Tunnel Club. Nine Weeks combines his experiences teaching in the civilian world and training in the Army. Rich is a sergeant in the California National Guard's 69th Public Affairs Detachment. The 69th returned from an overseas deployment in 2009. He still writes about his experiences in the Army on his military blog, "My Public Affairs," a humorously progressive insight into all things military. Before deploying, he taught at the high school and middle school levels and worked as a math coach to dozens of teachers across the state of California. Rich holds a Masters degree in Mathematics Education and a Bachelors degree in History. He currently resides with his wife and two sons in Salt Lake City, Utah.

More About the Author

Rich is a man who loves to write. He is the author of three books and the "Rich Like Me" political column at Washington Times Communities. He has taught at all levels, and continues to teach at the university level while enrolled in a doctoral program. Additionally, he works for the Peace & Conflict Studies program at the University of Utah.

Weird, because he is also a Soldier in the California National Guard. Two years ago his unit, the 69th Public Affairs Detachment, deployed to Kosovo, where he served as the Video Section Leader for Multi-National Task Force East, under NATO command. While there he wrote for the magazine, Guardian East. He also finished his first book, Nine Weeks, about his unique experience at Army basic training, and joined the ranks of military bloggers with "My Public Affairs."

Rich holds a masters degree in Mathematics Education from Western Governors University. Before that he roused rabble at CSU East Bay (previously "Hayward"). At CSUEB he founded a student newspaper, The California Statesman. While in school, he met his wife, Esther, at a political forum.

In between teaching assignments and his National Guard commitments, Rich works on his upcoming books. You can read about them by going to the "Books" menu above.

He resides in Salt Lake City with Esther and their two young sons.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I don't usually write reviews but I felt this was worth it. I bought 2 copies of this book, one for me and one for my 13 year old niece. It is written in a language young adults understand and it is informative, as well. I throughly enjoyed reading it!
