Caving is both the oldest of pastimes and the most uncertain. It’s a game played in the dark or on an invisible field. Deep caving demands what Bill Stone calls siege logistics. It’s not so much a matter of conquering a cave as outlasting it.

Introduction
I teach English, Social Studies and International Baccalaureate classes to English Language Learners and mainstream students at Luther Burbank High School in Sacramento, California.

I've written five books: Self-Driven Learning: Teaching Strategies For Student Motivation; The ESL/ELL Teacher's Survival Guide (with co-author Katie Hull Sypnieski); Helping Students Motivate Themselves: Practical Answers To Classroom Challenges; English Language Learners: Teaching Strategies That Work; and Building Parent Engagement In Schools (with co-author Lorie Hammond).

I write a popular education blog at http://larryferlazzo.edublogs.org/ , a weekly teacher advice column for Education Week Teacher and a monthly column for The New York Times. My articles on education policy regularly appear in the Washington Post and the Huffington Post. In addition, my articles have appeared in publications such as ASCD Educational Leadership, Social Policy, and Language Magazine.

I was a community organizer for nineteen years prior to becoming a public school teacher.

I'm married and have three children and two grandchildren.
