Education expert, Richard E. Bavaria, Ph.D., known around the nation as Dr. Rick, has launched DrRickBlog.com, a free online resource for parents and educators that offers tips and tools for students from pre-K to high school.

DrRickBlog.com features weekly topics surrounding the latest issues in education, as he shares thoughts, advice and creative ideas. In addition, Dr. Rick's Blog invites visitors to post feedback and comments with their own views, helping to further the connection among educators and education-focused families throughout North America.

"There is such a wealth of educational information out there that it can be overwhelming," said Dr. Rick. "According to Technorati, there are more than 112 million blogs on the Web. Yet, there doesn't seem to be one place to find day-to-day tips to help with the shared responsibility of keeping students on track in their educational careers. My goal is to provide a one-stop source with ‘tricks of the trade' that I've learned from helping parents, educators and students coast-to-coast."

DrRickBlog.com will include current and relevant news articles, reference lists with additional resources and many other exciting sections as the site continues to expand. It will incorporate an inspirational, informative but light, fun and interactive tone, providing a supportive destination for parents and educators to visit all year long.

Dr. Rick has nearly forty years of experience in education, including his current national position as a senior vice president at Sylvan Learning. He began his career in Baltimore County, Md., working his way from a high school English teacher to an assistant superintendent for the school system's department of curriculum and instruction. His advice has generated national attention through appearances on The Today Show, Paula Zahn NOW on CNN-TV and The Tom Joyner Morning Show, as well as numerous radio and national magazine interviews.

With a Master of Liberal Arts degree from The Johns Hopkins University, Dr. Rick also holds a Doctorate in English Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Maryland. In addition, he is a member of the Association of Supervision and Curriculum Development and the recipient of the Distinguished Alumni Award of Towson University's College of Liberal Arts.
