I am a teacher and coach that has the gift of sharing with people my personal story to promote positive change in their lives. I believe that every person has the potential for greatness. My goal is to encourage and motivate others to work on their lives. To grow, to improve, to change, to persevere, to believe, and to become more than you are now. We all given a certain amount of time. What we choose to do with it is our choice. WHAT IS YOUR DREAM? What is preventing you from working toward your dream? Are you afraid? Are you stuck? Are others pulling you down? Are you letting the past stand in your way? Do you know where to start? What are you doing to work on your dream? Are you willing to do whatever it takes? Let me share my story with your organization.
I graduated from Chamblee High School in 1982 having lettered in football, wrestling, soccer, and cross country. I attended Georgia Southern University and earned my BSEd in Math/Science in 1988. I went on to earn my MEd and EdS in Education in Math/Science from Georgia State University in 1992 and 1997. I have taught in both public and private schools. I have won awards in teaching and educational grants. I have spoken to numerous groups/professional organizations around the state. Filled with encouragement, compassion, restoration, and inspiration, you will want to hear my life story of hope. All I need is a microphone and sound system; but, if you do not have that, I would still be delighted to speak. If you have projector(s) and screen(s) that are wired, I can use those, too! I look forward to hearing from you! Not afraid to travel. Best target audiences are high school/college-age students to 50 somethings and everything in between.
All I need is a place to speak. If you have projector w/ screen and microphone, that would be perfect, but not necessary.
