About the Author
- Michael Mitchell Sr, Author -
I’m Michael “Coach” Mitchell. I emphasize Coach because for 40 plus years in education, with most of those years spent as a Physical Education Teacher. I have an Associate Degree from Penn Valley Community College in 1976. A Bachelors Degree from the University of Missouri Kansas City in Health and Physical Education in 1978. I went on to receive a Master’s Degree in Teaching from Webster University in 2003, followed by a Master's Degree in Athletic Administration, from William Woods University in 2007. I have five wonderful children, a wife of 45 years and at present 11 grandchildren. I've worked in the Kansas City Missouri School District, Freedom Christian Academy, and ended my career in the Raytown School District where I retired after 21 years, in 2019. Little did I know, I would be still working part-time at my Church School, Life- a- New Preparatory Academy, where I'm presently working since 2020. I've always had a heart for young people.
I've worked in Summer Sports Programs, various other schools, Summer Youth Employment Programs, coached at the High School level, and a time at the Boys and Girls Clubs. While working in these capacities with young people, coupled with my religious convictions, I decided to move upon the burden inside of me to write a book, to help them as much as I can to navigate through their relationships in this difficult world, we live in. I want to encourage young people and adults alike to take a good look at our attitudes about self-centeredness and focus on the feelings of others. It's with this mindset Mymei and Weourus were born. I pray you to enjoy the journey and that your life will be touched in some way to help this world to a better place to live. There will also be Words of Wisdom at the end of every chapter. These will be words to ponder that will help us in our dealings with others.
