Eric Mondschein Show Notes

Eric Mondschein wanted to have students from the US and Canada learn international law by arguing a mock case at the United Nations. Needing to have a country sponsor him to accomplish this, Eric called the US Ambassador to the UN and was quickly dismissed. That’s when Eric did something that got him the sponsorship he wanted. Listen to Eric’s story and learn how to get over the hump to move onward and upward faster.

Eric was born in Flushing, NY, but his parents soon moved across the Hudson River to Rockland County where he grew up in the country in Monsey, NY and lived at 12 College Road and went to Suffern high School.

Eric has had a multifaceted and diverse professional career. After he obtained a masters degree in delinquency prevention he served as a floor supervisor in a maximum security detention center, and after receiving his doctorate in law and education he held several positions with the US government and taught law and education at the undergraduate and graduate levels of education at several colleges and universities.

Eric directed an award-winning, law-related education program for the New York State Bar Association from 1980 through 1994 and in 1993 he was the recipient of the American Bar association’s Isidore Starr award for exemplary achievement in law-related education.

Eric recently authored Life at 12 College Road, which is a collection of short stories about growing up in America in the 1950s and 1960s. He also recently co-authored a monograph and supplement, Sexual Harassment and Bullying: Similar But Not the Same, that explores the current legal developments concerning sexual harassment and bullying in K-12 education.

When Eric is not writing or consulting you can usually find him fishing or shooting at his home in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York, where he lives with his wife Ginny.
