Chuck earned a Master's degree in Education with a concentration in Guidance and Counseling. He learned and employed non-directive counseling techniques so well that his professors asked him to accept the position of Teaching Associate, and to teach these techniques to other Master's candidates who were studying remotely. Upon graduation, he was hired as a guidance counselor in a high school. He eventually moved into the corporate world. However, able to retire early, he re-entered the education field by substitute teaching in grades K through 8 which he has been doing for the last several years.
