You truly do an amazing and incredible job going into those classrooms day after day. It is not an easy task and you are to be commended for your hard work,” said Garrett.
Columbus, Ohio (PRWEB) March 15, 2016
Recent speaking engagements have seen motivational speaker Mark Anthony Garrett, the leading expert in the K-12 educational industry, offering a message of thanks to teachers at home and abroad while encouraging others to do the same. His address comes a couple of months ahead of the annual Teacher Appreciation Day celebrations, which will be observed on May 3rd this year.
Garrett’s message of thanks to teachers comes as his new book, titled Teachers Are Heroes, has resulted in him starting a new movement for teacher empowerment globally. This new movement includes speeches and presentations dedicated to thanking teachers for their contribution to society, teacher training and staff development, as well as offering tips and principles to teachers that they can use to enhance their impact in the classroom.
The latest speeches of recognition and empowerment from Garrett have been based on themes geared at helping his audiences understand why and how teachers should be appreciated. He points out that teachers have one of the most powerful jobs in the world in that they help to shape the minds of future leaders, and also stated that people should be more understanding of the day-to-day struggles they face.
Once a special needs child whose life was transformed through the intervention of his 3rd grade teacher, Garrett also believes it is necessary to honor and celebrate teachers all year round and not just on Teacher Appreciation Day. “Our hats go off to all of the teachers around the world. You truly do an amazing and incredible job going into those classrooms day after day. It is not an easy task and you are to be commended for your hard work,” said Garrett, who has spoken at numerous events put on by educational institutions and other institutions.
The motivational speaker, who is also a successful businessman and educational consultant, also believes that the role of teachers has not been highlighted enough. “There is no question about the fact that you truly are the heroes of today. Where would we be without you?” asked Garrett during a recent presentation.
In addition to his growing movement for the appreciation and empowerment of teachers, Mark Anthony Garret is currently accepting invitations to speak at events organized around the appreciation or promotion of teachers and education. He can be contacted through his website, teachersareheroes.com, which is also a portal to purchasing his book, Teachers Are Heroes.
