Lois Wiley, Teacher, Playwright and Consultant
Logical or creative, linear thinker vs. lateral thinker, mathematics or
literature. Most people think that talent in one of these precludes skill in
another, but those people would be wrong when it comes to Lois Wiley.
Lois Wiley is a veteran teacher and experienced playwright. She spent 32
years teaching mathematics in DC Public Schools and almost as long doing a wide
variety of creative projects, as well. While a junior high school teacher, she
mentored girls in the Best Friends program, led the drama club, and wrote
plays to teach math concepts. She also writes to entertain the public. Her
play, Who's Crazy Here?, was made into an independent film and she has a cult
following for her comedy monologues.
Now, she has taken her teaching skills out of the classroom to become an
educational consultant. Her specialty is leading workshops on classroom
management. “How To Survive Past Halloween” and “Hold On, It’s Almost June” give
teachers practical strategies for effective classroom management. To bring her
workshop to your school district, contact Lois Wiley at lwiley517T@msn.com.
