Dr Les Stanaland received a PhD in Public Policy and Political Economy from the University of Texas at Dallas in 2020. Before then, he has taught and continues to teach at the community college level in the D/FW area. He earned his B.S. as well as M.A. degrees from Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas.

In his 15 years of education experience, he strives to meet students "where they are" and uses current events in the class room as a way to test theories and predictions of political and economic behavior. He uses problem-based learning to get and keep students engaged in the learning process.

Raised in the church, Dr Stanaland appreciates the role that the Christian ethic can be used in policy debates and guides students to do the same. He lives in the D/FW area and has a wife of 16 years and two children.
