A very gracious story titled a "A Man of Change" by Dean Poling, describes the genesis of the Exam Cram 2 title. It was published in the Valdosta Daily Times, of Valdosta, Georgia, on October 15, 2005. The article was not posted on the Times' website, but I was given permission by the editor to post it here. The article that cites a major career accomplishment in Tallahassee, Florida, is reprinted here from the Tallahassee Democrat. In November 2007, the Madison County Carrier published an article- "Favorite Teacher..."-Madison County Carrier 11/07-highlighting some of my accomplishments in Education and Training. It was published in print, but was not archived on their website. I was given permission to share it with visitors. In December of 2007 Warren was a scholarship recipient from the International Biopharmaceutical Association for CDM Training toward the GCP and GDMP certifications from KRGI.org.
Before diving into IT as a career, Warren was a professional cabinet/furniture maker specializing in antique restorations and custom woodturnings. He is still an avid woodworker and craftsmen. He loves working wood and teaching others woodworking. He was published in many well known woodworking publications. You can view his woodworking background by clicking the Trade Resume link in the left frame.

Avocationally, Warren's ultimate career goal based on call is/was to work full-time as a Hospital Chaplain with a special focus on the terminally ill, hospice care and geriatrics. This has not changed over the years. Life and history have not enabled Warren to fulfill that goal yet, so he continues his work in IT. (Primoris crux crucis tunc resurrection!)
Philosophically, his family comes before any professional interests.
For relaxation his 100 lb lab- Blondie- loves shagging wayward golf shots. In 2008, a friend reintroduced him to a sport he was an avid participant in inthe 70's- Bowling. Thanks to the gracious reception he has received at Jac's Lanes in Valdosta, Ga. and Country Farm Pro Shop by John and Sandy Keeler, he has started getting the kinks out and bowling again on a regular basis. It is a great stress reliever and way to socialize. He highly recommends folks in the area to visit Jac's Lanes and Country Farm Pro Shop. Here is a short video of making the 4-7-10 split at Jac's Lanes. (And I was happy.)
Above all else Warren loves to laugh.
In terms of education he advocates excellence over mediocrity and working in a profession that he loves where he can earn a living. He encourages his students to find something they love where they can earn what they need to live the life they want.
When asked the question: "Why can't we have the academic outcomes in education that we had back in the 1960's and 1970's", Warren's response is clear- We do not have the outcomes of those era's because we are not using the models we used back then. In those times, we used a Scholar Academic Model blended with the Social Efficiency Model. Now we are are more focused on a Learner Centric Model. The outcomes will not be and cannot be the same. If we want the outcomes of an era where Scholar Academic was the norm then we need our teachers to be trained as Scholar Academics so that they will teach under that umbrella. The result- The students will work harder and EXCEL. Hard work is NOT A BAD THING.
Teaching for Warren is an interaction and collaboration involving someone who wants to share something s/he knows with someone who wants to learn that same skill or concept. It matters not whether he is teaching academics, trade or IT people or folks in the church. His classes are relaxed and full of alot of real world stories.
Though a native New Yorker, born in Queens and raised in Brooklyn and Queens NY, Warren has resided in North Florida for the last 22 years which has been the geographic base for the Training and Support operations. He is currently selling his home and relocating farther north as he entertains the notion of pursuing his ultimate career goal, and expanding his offerings. If you know of someone who is looking to move to a very peaceful and reasonably priced environment in North Florida feel free to contact him.
