If you live near Port Jervis, NY or have kids that play basketball in the area, then you most likely already know of Andrew Marotta. I did not, until he reached out to me a few months back. I read his book in one weekend and loved it! Both of my parents are retired educators and administrators, so Andrew and I share way more than just the common thread of having ADHD!  I’ve since given them both a copy :-) He and I connected for a phone interview just a few days after that first read and this is how it went. I’m grateful to know him now- what a great, energetic guy! I hope you enjoy this visit with Mr. Marotta as much as we did.  Happy springtime! -Peter
