The name “Caddickisms” first came into use in 1990 in a college essay on the author’s personal theory of education. It was applied to this blog mostly for its coincidental similarity to the word “catechisms,” which explains the form of this page.

Who is the author of Caddickisms?

The author of Caddickisms is Jeff Caddick. Jeff is a husband, father, distance learning specialist, and geek. Many other boring labels apply equally well.
