James L. Casale, Ph.D.


I am a state and national award-winning educator. I was the Florida Teacher the of the Year and a National School of Excellence Principal at Purchase School in Harrison, New York. My passion is to encourage, inspire, inform, and engage parents to accept their solemn responsibility as their child's first teachers and role models.

To that end, I have written hundreds of essays and two books. The first book," Wise Up and Be the Solution: How to create a culture of learning at home and guide your child to succeed in school and life" was positively reviewed by Kirkus Reviews and received five-star reviews on Amazon.It was later acquired by Skyhorse Publishing with an additional 4000 words, a new cover, and against my wishes, a slight change in the subtitle. My second parenting book became available in October 2017. "Family Pledge: Raising life-long learners and good citizens is unique. It consists of 40 essays that guide parents toward better parenting.It has already garnered five-star reviews on Amazon. Both books are available on Amazon or my website; www.jamescasalephd.com.
