You Are Worth It!
Some studies show that 1 in 5 students suffer from depression and/or anxiety. One of Jeff’s favorite keynote topics is about finding your self-worth and believing in who you are. Jeff helps to combat against depression and anxiety by teaching on the positive effects of self affirmations.
Diversity & Inclusion
Many people do not recognize that although we are all different in gender, skin complexion, religion etc, as human beings, the only difference between any one of us, on a microscopic level is 0.01%. This means we are more alike than not. The sad part is people are being bullied, discriminated against and even killed over the difference of 0.01%. Jeff focuses in on the power of inclusion and embracing diversity.
Turning Adversities Into Advantages
Jeff shares intimate stories of obstacles he faced in his own life, but more importantly, how he was able to take these adversities and turn them into his advantages.
For the many teachers who put their heart and soul into their students, as time goes on, you can sometimes experience fatigue and burn out. Jeff reminds you of why you got into the profession of teaching to begin with. Your job is greater than teaching 1+1, your job is shaping the future leaders of tomorrow. Jeff wants to remind you about your importance.
The Next World Leader is Sitting in Your Classroom
