Who is Doc Steele?
Having begun his teaching career in 1977, Doc Steele has thoughtfully developed and refined an approach to reading and writing that has helped AP students secure full ride scholarships and would-be criminals discover opportunities for a better life.
We called him “The G.O.A.T.” — “The Greatest Of All Teachers!”

Why It Works
Demanding, yet approachable lessons respect students’ inherent abilities and inspire a love for reading.
Vocabulary (in Context)
Real acquisition and mastery of an extensive vocabulary, so crucial for the verbal half of the SAT exam and future success in college, comes through repeated exposure to challenging words in context.
Reading (with Passion)
No language arts curriculum is valid if students aren’t afforded at least half an hour of quiet, sustained reading time every day. Daily opportunities for noses in books is the key to falling in love with literature and learning overall.
Writing (with Purpose)
Multiple opportunities to write for a reason help students hone this critical skill which, like learning to play an instrument, can only be acquired through extensive, lengthy, concentrated, solo, and daily practice.

Students and colleagues alike praise the tried and true philosophy of Doc Steele
“Dr. Steele was my Seventh Grade Reading teacher, a mentor and a true inspiration to me. His patience and knowledge are only surpassed by his kindness, strength of character, and love for God. He loves to read, write, and learn, and always strives to make the quest for knowledge an exciting adventure for his students.”

“Dr. Steele taught me so much more than English. He taught me dignity, discipline and, most importantly, that I could achieve more than I thought capable. And for that, I thank him.”
