You are exactly where you are, at this exact moment, around the people you are around, for a specific purpose. Turning 40, pursuing a doctorate degree and dealing with 2 HUGE life blows back to back have taught me to become more intentional about how I spend my time, who I spend my time with, and the power of the word, "no!" In this Keynote, I share a journey of being intentional about life, happiness and purpose, and the need to embrace every second of every minute of every hour of every day. Using my why to drive my intention changed the way that I teach students and teachers. I have a responsibility to value the precious time that I have with them, to make it meaningful and impactful.
