THANK YOU! I had heard Houston speak several times but it was so incredibly powerful to hear him speak to my school, and to my kids. I will never forget standing in the gym and realizing he had the undivided attention of over 2100 students and staff. Immediately, that day, students and staff were using the language of kindness and having conversations about making kindness normal. We have had so many conversations since of not being negative when we are uncomfortable but willing to push ourselves to be uncomfortable for the sake of being "different" and being kind.
I had several staff tell me how much they enjoyed the presentation including my principal who isn't the type of guy to want to talk about love. I also had a staff member that I have worked with for 8 years and never once has he said anything positive about what our leadership program does. He saw the presentation and sent me an email complimenting me and my students. He is finally getting it! Thank you for that.
I am continuing to incorporate the challenges into my classroom and trying to get them out to the whole school. Thank you for getting us started!
