Thanks to the tireless efforts of an amazing parent volunteer I got the chance to kick of the RDLS Readathon! This school is packed with excited learners and teachers. One amazing super power we discussed? The ability to speak more than one language. Guess what? These kids are VERY POWERFUL!!
During a school visit in December I got to learn a thing or two about heroes from the Jackson Mighty Girls. These young ladies are growing into confident leaders thanks to one dedicated and passionate teacher.
She told me, "This is a truly inspirational story and a wonderful portrayal of how one person can make a difference. Our kiddos need to hear those and understand that they have more power than they think."
Don't you wish she was your teacher too?
During my visit to Greenwood on October 30th the students were dressed as the professionals they want to be when they grow up. They are an ambitious, intelligent, and caring class of kids who will give me lots of material for future biographies! Thanks to their amazing teachers for doing such great work and inviting me to join in!
On October 17th I was honored to present a keynote to some of the most hard working, dedicated professionals I've met. We recharged our resilience, reduced our stress, found our passion, and inspired our creative sides. What a morning!
I am grateful for the opportunity I had this weekend to meet with the brilliant, warm folks at Ancestry Books. We spent an hour exploring the history of a great hero, our capacity to be leaders, and our artist talents. Oh, and we had a mini-dance party. If you live in the Twin Cities area hit up this bookstore. You will feel comfort and inspiration. You will be challenged to think new thoughts. You will meet extraordinary people.
