Rich Stowell is the author of the book, Nine Weeks: a teacher's education in Army Basic Training, which combines his experiences teaching in the civilian world and training in the Army. Rich is a staff sergeant in the Utah National Guard's 128th Public Affairs Detachment. The 128th is currently serving an overseas deployment in Afghanistan. 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 University of Utah in the communications department and has 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. When he is not deployed, he resides with his wife and two sons in Salt Lake City, Utah.

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.
Great story with characters that you just love as you join them on a great high school adventure. I loved that it brought up so many wonderful memories of my high school experience at East High School.
