John Eshleman was born in Willows, California way back on 28 October 1955. He's lived in various States as well as in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada (for a couple of years back in the latter 1960s). He went to Liberty High School in Liberty Township, Ohio (which is adjacent to Youngstown, Ohio), and then attended and graduated from Youngstown State University (YSU) in 1977. At YSU he majored in Psychology, and Dr. Steve Graf was his advisor and mentor (a life-long mentor, too, let it be added). John graduated with an EdD in Educational Psychology from West Virginia University in 1988, with a doctoral dissertation on celeration-based instruction. (Celeration is a basic measure of the change to rate of response over time.)Since then John has held various jobs and positions in both business and academic environments. As of 1 July 2007 John has had a full-time faculty position in the Department of Applied Behavior Analysis at the Chicago campus of The Chicago School of Professional Psychology.
