I am currently pursuing a PhD in educational leadership at Andrews University, investigating steps school leaders can take to turn gossip into work talk that fosters a culture for solution in early childhood education programs. I am especially interested in creating productive and long-term solutions to the problem of Gossip in schools, church, and families using biblical principles.

Gossip in schools, church, and families
“Gossip stings the soul!” Ms. Allen, the teacher in the preschool classroom couldn’t keep her red rag from wagging against and stinging her students. I was the therapist who refused to join in on her wagging and stinging spree. Ultimately, I became her next red rag victim. From this book you will learn how to:
- Discourage gossip in the workplace
- Avoid gossip in the workplace
- Set the standard for your own behavior in the workplace
In “The Wagging Red Rag: How Gossip Stings the Soul,” I share my struggles as a red rag victim and how I overcame the stings of gossip through faith in my Lord, Jesus Christ. You can, too.
