Free the Teachers

TOV Press and Amazon.com

Even though he formally retired seven years ago, Dave Markward continues to work in education. 

And his latest job has been writing a book that's just been published, "Free the Teachers: A Guide to Joyful Teaching and Learning."

Herb Trix reports.
A publication of TOV Press, his book is available through Amazon.com.

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
