Donna Walker Tileston has served education as a leader in teaching, administration, research, writing, software development, and national consulting for the past thirty years. She has been responsible for curriculum development, management, technology, finance, grants management, public relations, and drug abuse prevention programs. For the past twenty-five years, she has been actively involved in brain research, including research on factors that inhibit learning or increase the brain�s ability to put information into long-term memory. Tileston�s ten-book collection What Every Teacher Should Know (Corwin Press 2003) received the 2004 Distinguished Achievement Award for Excellence in Educational Publishing by the Association of Educational Publishers. Other Corwin press titles include What Every Parent Should Know About Schools, Standards, and High-Stakes Tests (2005), Ten Best Teaching Practices: How Brain Research, Learning Styles and Standards Define Teaching Competencies (2005), and Strategies for Teaching Differently (1998). Tileston has presented extensively at local, state, national, and international conferences, notably at The Hague in November 2005 and in Prague during March 2006.
