Staying Strong for Urban Kids: What Real Reform Is About
Keynote and Panelist for the Urban Education Committee Brunch at the NJEA Annual Convention, November 2013

Society expects achievement and more is expected of our educational
institutions than ever before. How do we, as educators, meet these
growing demands? The field is full of programs, standards, and
evaluations. However, to make the greatest progress in student
achievement, we must first evaluate those leading the advancement–
ourselves. Do you want to motivate and inspire yourself and others to do
extraordinary things? Do you want to catapult your performance to the
highest level? Do you want to have less worry, fear, doubt, anger and
guilt? Do you want to have the energy needed to accomplish all of the
above and more? This presentation studies how improving our inner energy
transforms the quality of our own life and work, improving our schools
and leading our students to greater achievement.
