BOUND FOR GREATNESS
The celebrity Bound For Greatness "Inspire Me" student, teacher, parent and administration leadership program. This leadership mentoring program is ideal for schools and districts that have low budgets. The primary goal of this program is to help schools and school districts provide additional educational support services for students, teachers, counselors, coaches, administrators and parents. We visit designated classrooms and areas in the school addressing the principal's/district's objectives.
Inspire Me is designed to improve school climate to prepare students and educators for successful outcomes. We motivate everyone in the building to work harder, to focus and refocus, to commit to academic goals and objectives 100% even when the body wants to slow down or shift into cruise control. Most importantly, with urgency, we help students and teachers start and finish the year strong. We steer students toward productive roles in school and the community. Peer pressure, vandalism, bullying, poor choices and decisions, unacceptable behavior, lack of respect, discipline and tolerance, and lackluster effort seem to creep into classrooms. Inspire Me words that off.
