My name is Jon Davis. I am a Middle School teacher and a writer. I became a writer while in the United States Marine Corps. I found the activity a productive way to escape from the tedium and stress of long deployments to Iraq and other trainings when the luxury was allowed. Though I left the Marines in 2008, I still focus on communicating what I know and my perspectives as my time in service greatly affected the way I write and what I write about.
Besides teaching and writing, I am a small business owner, publishing articles and tools for teachers. I’ve worked in retail and Silicon Valley Start-ups I am graduate of the University of North Texas school of Business.
My most outstanding achievements include my marriage with my wonderful and supportive wife (and editor) Jennie and serving the United States Marines and taking part in two tours to Iraq.
My background is that I grew up in a small farm town in Oklahoma where there was little money, opportunity or hope for a successful and rewarding life to those who stayed. I was raised by a single mother who worked very hard to give me a better life than she had. She raised me to try always to be a competitor and always encouraged my curious nature. She was and is my biggest fan.
