Susan Mulcaire is a teacher and attorney who obsesses about “missing link” skills, and building contextual knowledge for higher level learning. Susan formed Tween Publishing in 2007, originally focusing on curriculum for the middle level. At Tween she tackled such missing links to achievement as work habits, time management, and organizational skills in The Middle School Student’s Guide to Ruling the World. She followed up with a fun introduction to post-secondary in The Middle School Student’s Guide to College, and a popular comprehensive study skills curriculum The Middle School Student’s Guide to Study Skills.
In May 2015, she published The 21st Century Student’s Guide to Financial Literacy – Going Global, a 17 lesson big picture exploration of money, commerce, innovation and entrepreneurship. In 2016 she published The 21st Century Student’s Guide to Financial Literacy – Getting Personal, an 18 lesson personal finance and money management curriculum ideal for grades 8 and up. These courses are the most comprehensive, relevant and classroom-ready financial literacy programs available to educators.
Susan frequently presents at education conferences and is the author of many educational articles including “Are Your Students Prepared for the Organizational Demands of Middle School?,” NMSA’s Middle E-Connections, September 2007, “Messy Binders & Missing Assignments: Can the Chronically Disorganized Middle School Student be Helped?” (NYSMSA’s In Transition, Spring 2008), “Addressing the Middle School Organizational Skills Conundrum,” (FASA’s Communicator, Winter 2009) and “Welcome to the University of Middle School!” NMSA’s Middle Ground, October 2009.
