Carmen Mariano is one of the most amiable chaps you’ll ever meet. Now in his seventies, he has been in school as a student, teacher, coach or administrator since he was 6. In that time, Carmen has earned his Bachelor’s Degree from The Catholic University of America, a Master’s degree from The Harvard Graduate School of Education, and a Doctorate in Educational Leadership from Boston College. He developed long lasting friendships as teacher, mentor and coach. And Carmen is also a nifty collector of stories. Long and short tales that entertain, inspire and make one think. He’s crafted a terrific book on the subject called “The Strength of a Story,” the perfect guest for our podcast that celebrates conversation!
