About Me

Al LinkedIn Photo.jpgMy name is Al Levin and I’m an assistant principal in a public elementary school.  I’ve been in education for nearly twenty years.  I’m married and have four young children between the ages of ten and four.  My wife is an educator, as well, but resigned from her teaching position when we had the twins.

I’ve recently been working towards a Co-Active coaching certificate through the Coaches Training Institute.  The coaching work has allowed me to support the staff I work with in the public schools, as well as others who are seeking support in reaching their goals or working past challenging times in their lives.

I am also a person who has recovered from a major depressive disorder, an illness that was quite debilitating for nearly six months of my life.  Through this experience, I have become very passionate about learning more about mental health and supporting others with a mental illness, particularly men with depression.

      Thanks for reading and commenting. I’m very sorry for your loss. It’s incredible just how debilitating & how powerfully negative depression can be. The feeling of pain and the unrealistic, but very real feeling of being a burden to others is frightening. Good luck to you!
