Because I want to, not because I have to. My number one rule is NO STRESS!

I enjoy learning and like you, I myself am currently a student. I started my educational pursuits during my travels around the world while in the military but never completed my education. I, like some of you, had a wake up call and realized if I wanted better I was going to have to go get it. I first earned my Associate of Arts Degree from University of Maryland in Management Studies. From there, I completed a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Criminal Justice from Saint Leo University and a Master of Science Degree from Nova Southeastern University in Criminal Justice with a Behavioral Science Specialization. While earning my Masters Degree I graduated with honors and became a member of Alpha Phi Sigma, the National Criminal Justice Honor Society, Omega Tau-Chapter. I am currently attending Capella University pursuing my PhD in Public Safety with a concentration on Criminal Justice. I completed 640 hours of police recruit training and graduated from the Kansas City Missouri Police Department Police Academy in 1979. I received my Tennessee POST commission in 1994 when I started working for the Smyrna Police Department. In 2007 at the age of 50 and after working in the law enforcement career field for 27 years I started my second career, teaching. I started here at Daymar Institute when it was Draughons Junior College as an adjunct instructor. The following term I was hired full time. Six months later I was hired as the Criminal Justice/Paralegal Lead Instructor. January 2010 I became the Program Leader for the Criminal Justice Administration department. During the Summer 2010 term Criminal Justice and Paralegal programs were split and were no longer under the leadership of one Program Leader. July 21, 2010 I was promoted to my current position as Associate Director of Education.
My full name is Michael Dan Brashear, I am 54 years old, married, and my wife and I have six children. The two oldest are married now. The ages of the other four are sixteen, fourteen, nine, and four. I was born in Ardmore, Oklahoma when there used to be an Air Force Base there. My father is a retired Air Force officer and pilot. Because of my fathers time in the military and mine, I have literally traveled around the world. I am a Desert Storm veteran and my Daughters Husband is in the U.S. Army stationed at Fort Hood, Texas. He has had two tours to Iraq. I SUPPORT THE TROOPS! I love camping, fishing, bike riding, reading on my Kindle, photography, swimming, and anything that will allow me to spend time with my family.
Work smart, study smart, use good time management, have fun and remember my number one rule 'NO STRESS!"

Implications for the Prevention of School Attacks in the United States
The Safe School Initiative was implemented through the Secret Serviceís National Threat Assessment Center and the Department of Educationís Safe and Drug-Free Schools Program. The Initiative drew from the Secret Serviceís experience in studying and preventing assassination and other types of targeted violence and the
Department of Educationís expertise in helping schools facilitate learning through the creation of safe environments for students, faculty, and staff. This document, the Safe School Initiativeís final report, details how our two agencies studied school-based attacks and what we found. Some of the findings may surprise you. It is clear that there is no simple explanation as to why these attacks have occurred. Nor is there a simple solution to stop this problem. But the findings of the Safe School Initiative do suggest that some future attacks may be preventable, if those responsible for safety in schools know what questions to ask and where to uncover information that may help with efforts to intervene before a school attack
