Want to make learning stick? Go back to school!


By Paul Nunn

Screen Shot 2014-03-27 at 9.44.21 AMAllow me to introduce myself. I’m Paul Nunn and I’m a former teacher. I spent years studying childhood learning theory, discipline models, and even the latest classroom technology, which, in 1987, included overhead projectors and mimeograph machines (that machine that produced those smelly handouts with blue/purple ink). If you’re not old enough to remember, ask anyone who went to high school in the 80s or before.

To supplement my outrageously low teacher’s salary, I became a part-time teller at a local credit union here in Houston where I continue to work to this day. In 2003, I was given the opportunity to build a training department from the ground up. While I didn’t know anything about training, I knew how to be a teller and I knew how to teach.
