There are moments throughout the day where kids reach out to an adult hoping to make a connection. Oftentimes, these attempts are not recognized by busy adults and in the end opportunities go unnoticed for a child to fulfill their potential. Tune in to hear a powerful story about Les Brown who defied all odds to become his best self all because of a special teacher in his life.


  • We as educators are in such a powerful position to help or hinder a child’s future
  • If you open yourself to the possibility that it can happen, do the work so that when the opportunity strikes you are ready, then you will become more than ever imagined
  • It’s not going above and beyond your job title, it is your job title
  • Nothing can impact a kid more than a connection with an adult
