The ultimate goal is to share strategies that will provide social, emotional, and academic support with the goal of academic and career success.
“I enjoyed how you used music and movement to keep students and educators engaged in learning. Your strategies are practical for real-life lessons.”
“Awesome! One of the best staff development sessions ever!”
“Down to earth and excellent. This staff development workshop was one of the best in a long time. These strategies will relate to the kids of today.”
“What can I say excellent.”
“Flip was outstanding! His techniques will be a great asset to the teaching and learning process.”
“Flip should be heard by all teachers.”
“I met Flip in Tennessee. He came to Texas and my people were really excited about his workshop. I was to busy to see him to see him here in Atlanta. I was so impressed. “Flip is the truth!”
“Thank you for your powerful presentation today at the NAME Conference. I was especially intrigued when you shared your Men Of Ardmore program. It’s important we help students alleviate their emotional constipation to achieve academically, socially and become leaders within their school.”
“Thank you for coming to Kenmoor. Your presentation made an impact on many of my students. This is the first break I’ve had since you left. Every five minute students were dismissed from class due to stirred emotions. Today was the first time many of our students were able to open up and share some of their issues and sorrows. I have a young lady that I kid and joke around with me every day and she never told me that her 5 older brothers are incarcerated. (All of them) Wow!! She could barely compose herself. Sometimes, kids just need to hear the truth from others (non family members and people who have lived what they are living and made it out successfully) to gain an appreciation for reality. Thank you for being their inspiration today.”
“Thank you for being an extraordinary role model and leader."
“I enjoyed Dr. Clay’s presentation. It was amazing!”
