Pete Collesano grew up in Clifton, New Jersey playing football, basketball, and baseball. After receiving his degree in Physical Education and Health from Montclair State University, his life in sports led him to be one of the youngest head high school football coaches in New Jersey history at the age of twenty-six for Bergen Academy in Hackensack, New Jersey. Pete continued to coach as well as teach at Elmwood Park High School for three years before moving to South Jersey with his wife Melissa.
Pete has continued teaching at Eagle Academy in Egg Harbor Township, a school for at-risk youth. While teaching at Eagle Academy, Pete was awarded the honor of Teacher of the Year in 2008. Of all the accomplishments he has had, he holds the letters from graduating students about how he helped them to grow and get better are closest to his heart.
Collesano has been a small business owner, running a landscaping business for a number of years and currently his own consulting firm, Collesano & Associates. He considers his life and business experiences to be the biggest influences on his success in the classroom and with helping people in their personal development.
His Master’s Degree in administration and educational experiences led him to write his first book, School Sucks! Why Schools Are Failing and How We Can Fix It — a hard-hitting manifesto about what stubborn schools continue to do wrong and how focusing more intently on the real problems will lead to quicker and measurable success for students.
