Culturize – Every Student. Every Day. Whatever it Takes.

  • Facilitated by Jimmy Casas, educational leader, best selling author, national advisor.

    Eradicate Average! CULTURIZE Your School. Average schools don't inspire greatness--and greatness is what our schools need if we are going to produce world-changing learners. In this presentation author and education leader Jimmy Casas shares his 4 Core Principles - Champion for All Kids, Expect Excellence, Carry the Banner and Merchant of Hope, to maximize student learning and remind us that every child deserves to be a part of something great. Jimmy draws from his personal experiences as a struggling student and his insight from working in an inner-city school to remind you of your purpose and reignite your passion as an educator. This session will inspire you to go do whatever it takes for all students to be successful!
