As son of author and TCK-care pioneer David Pollock, Michael’s globally mobile childhood and his international work as an adult teaching in China for 9 years has created a unique platform for understanding the challenges and gifts of Third Culture Kids. Michael has used his Masters in Education both in the U.S. and abroad, providing leadership through curriculum-design, teacher-training, head mastering, mentoring, and coaching among a variety of ages and ethnicities. Michael has just finished the new and revised addition of “Third Culture kids” due for publishing fall of 2017.

Father of three, and currently residing in Michigan with his wife, Kristen, Michael leads Daraja, a ministry founded to help “travel alongside TCKs on their journeys”.  Along with coaching, mentoring and teaching, he also advocates for more holistic care, formational relationships, trainings and resources in and for the TCK and CCK community.
