As a father of two, a longtime family therapist and founder of Active Parenting Publishers – an Atlanta-based company that develops web-based and online educational tools for moms and dads – Michael Popkin (M.Ed. ’75, Ph.D. ’80) knows full well that parenting isn’t easy. So he decided to write a how-to manual for desparate families called, “Taming the Spirited Child: Strategies for Parenting Challenging Children Without Breaking Their Spirits.”
Some little boys, when you ask them, will claim that they want to be professional athletes when they grow up. Or firemen. Or superheroes. When Anthony Stinson (M.Ed. ’86, Ed.S. ’96) was a child, he knew what he wanted to be: a teacher.
Karin Korb (M.S. ’03) was an active do-gooder long before she’d devoted her adult life to lifting others up, the kind of person who, as a child, invited the homeless to her house for meals, became the first altar girl in the state of New Jersey and even thought about becoming a nun. But when she broke her back at 17 while practicing a routine gymnastics vault and lost the use of both of her legs, it cemented the notion that her life would have a special purpose.
Carolyn Hall (Ed.S. ’93) has dedicated her life to making a difference in children’s lives. She spent the bulk of her career in south central Los Angeles, working for 16 years in the sprawling Los Angeles Unified School District, the second-largest school system in the country. She then moved more than 2,000 miles to Georgia, where she spent a stint in suburban Atlanta as the principal of two Cobb County elementary schools.
