WELLNESS & SCHOOL CULTURE
This uplifting and humor-filled message is a great way to kick off your school year, semester, or re-energize educators throughout the year. Mark's signature keynote walks through clarifying your purpose, choosing fun, growing relationships with colleagues and students, and celebrating one another. Mark shares his own teaching journey from 70-student classes in rural China, to English language schools in Taiwan, to high school in Southern California.
He opens up about the challenges he faced as a new teacher and the success he found by growing relationships with his students, colleagues and himself. Attendees are inspired to look for more meaning in their work and reignite the joy in their classrooms and their campuses. As one principal told Mark, "I have walked classrooms the last three days and my teachers are happy and working to build relationships with their students. I know your message was a tremendous part of the tone that has been set for our year”.
Be the One (45-60 minute keynote)
LEADERSHIP & MOTIVATION
We hear it all the time from successful people in sports, in business, in the arts, in medicine: "If it weren't for her..." and "If it weren't for him...". Successful people typically credit someone else that encouraged or inspired them to become more than they ever thought they could be themselves. They often have that one person that gave them that life-changing support, confidence, or perhaps a nudge when they needed it most. In this keynote address, Mark shares
his own experience as a high school student, and how one special teacher helped change his perspective on life. The uplifting message reminds audiences that we all have the ability to BE THE ONE for someone else. Our next interaction could be the one they remember and talk about for the rest of their life. It starts with one.
