Glen Mourning the Author, Motivator and Educator

Glen Leroy Mourning was born on March 26th, 1987 in Danbury Connecticut. As the oldest of his mother’s five children, Glen was blessed with the opportunity to lead by example where he would become the first of two generations to not only graduate from high school, but to complete a masters degree.
In 2005 Glen earned a Full- Athletic Scholarship to attend the University of Connecticut where he would make the “All Big East Conference Academic Honor roll for two years in a row before graduating and attending Grad School at the University of Bridgeport.
In 2010 Glen finished his masters degree in Elementary Ed. and was named the Student teacher of the year at the University of Bridgeport. Since then, Glen worked along side of the Nationally renowned Educational contributor Dr. Steve Perry, Star of the CNN Special “Black in America II” and the host of TV One’s “Save our Sons”.
As a 4th and 5th grade teacher at Capital Preparatory Magnet School in Hartford Connecticut, Glen managed to brilliantly inspire the lives of hundreds of students in his tenure as an educator. At the same time, he was the assistant Varsity football coach at Capital Prep Where the team posted an incredible record of 35-2, winning the State Championship before stepping down from his role as defensive coordinator.
For the past year, Glen has worked in South East Washington D.C as a 4th grade teacher at Democracy Prep Public Charter School. Next year, Glen will continue working in Washington, D.C as an educator and community leader. Glen’s greatest accomplishments are not those that have occurred on the playing fields across America but rather with his promise to his family that he has kept for the last seven years which was to become the motivation for his students that have come from similar circumstances.

“Dreams Interrupted” is based on a true story. Ever wonder what life is like for big time college football players?

Better yet, have you ever wondered what life would be like if for your entire life you planned on living out this dream until suddenly, you wake up four years later and the possibility is stripped from your finger tips without ever realizing your opportunity has expired? This is the story of the failures of childhood dreams, the struggle with masculinity and the limited experiences of life outside the walls of his hometown that leaves Glen (Mourning) stripped of his confidence, confused about his future and subsequently frustrated with what a life without football has to offer.
