If you met the author today, you would have a difficult time matching up his childhood with the person in front of you. Dr. Jonathan T. Jefferson is a nonfiction writer and education commentator who is well groomed and speaks in a scholarly manner, far from the dusty kid with skinned knees who liked to sink his bare feet into squishy cow pies during his summers on a farm.
After teaching in public schools for several years, Dr. Jefferson became a school and school district administrator in 1999. As the seventh of eight children born to Harlem, New York-raised parents, Jonathan grew up in Queens and struggled in school during his early years. His difficulties were due in part to his free spirit, which was cultivated by summers spent on his family’s old farm in Upstate New York.
In 2013, he published Mugamore: Succeeding Without Labels — Lessons for Educators. The book, available through FriesenPress, chronicles Dr. Jefferson’s transformation from mischievous child to focused achiever.
