MICKEY’S MISSION IS HELPING TEACHERS DISCOVER A SOUND180
I believe, as I am sure you do, that your school’s greatest assets are not the buildings themselves, but those teachers that speak into the lives of students every day.
My family and I have committed our lives to make a positive difference in the lives of teachers and teens. I would consider it an honor to partner with you and your school’s goal of building better school year; a SOUND180 school year (one hundred eighty days of classroom harmony)
Today’s schools are under attack. Education is facing unparalleled hurts, pressures and choices. We must pour back into those that pour into so many; our educators. If we can heal those hurts, help in times of pressure, enrich, equip, and empower teacher in their choices, we will have better students and a positive school atmosphere. That is where I can help assist you with this school professional development presentation. I share with educators often, “Within all of us is the ability to create a SOUND180 but you must discover your sound.” With all that teachers are facing, we must give them hope. SOUND180 helps teachers discover a unique sound that creates one hundred eighty days of classroom harmony.
