Charles Fuhrken, Ph.D.
As an ELA writer, Charles’ goal is to fully equip teachers with a toolkit that helps their students become critical, enthusiastic, and confident readers. Charles’s passion for education was cultivated during his tenure as a classroom teacher and then through his work earning his Ph.D. in curriculum and instruction. Before joining Mentoring Minds, Charles spent 20 years designing assessments for many state programs, including Texas, California, Georgia, and Virginia. When he’s not developing top-notch ELA materials, you will find Charles either traveling or planning his next getaway.
