Curriculum Vitae

The Teaching Zone

The Teaching Zone was conceptualized by Brenda Scheuermann, PhD and Bill Jacobs, PhD. Our on-line technical adviser and webmaster is Ed Wood, of The Media Cottage in Wimberley, Texas.

Dr. Scheuermann’s goal for The Teaching Zone is to provide research-based content that will allow each consumer to obtain knowledge and skills that actually work in the classroom — especially with our most problematic students. It is this goal that we endeavor to accomplish via our continuing professional education modules, summer workshops, and other product offerings.

While the Teaching Zone is a web-based program, our summer workshops are conducted live and in-person in San Marcos, Texas.

We appreciate you taking the time to visit us and welcome your comments, feedback, and suggestions!
