Elementary, Middle, and High School Assemblies

bully school assemblyKeith has worked extensively with young people of all ages.  He taught sixth grade and coached middle school academic teams.  He also taught summer sessions with children that had severe cognitive, physical and/or medical disabilities at the internationally acclaimed Gate Way Education Center in Greensboro NC. He has worked with high school students as a community youth leader as well as private coach, counselor and tutor.

For his work with at risk students and parent outreach, Keith is the winner of the “Teaching Excellence Award” as well as the “National Impact Award”.

Keith is not an entertainer that decided to put together a school presentation and tour the educational circuit.  Working with young people has been his life’s work.  Comedy is a tool Keith uses to hold his audience’s attention and make the concepts he is teaching “stick”.  It’s not about the comedy, it’s about the message.

Because Keith has worked as an educator at the elementary, middle, and high school levels, he understands the cognitive abilities of students in different grades.  He adjusts his shows accordingly.  His high school anti bullying assembly is very different from his middle school assembly which is different from his elementary school assembly. 

His teacher and parent workshops also fit the needs of educators and parents that work with students in different grade levels.

As a former class room teacher, Keith understands that students have different learning styles. His anti bullying assembly has components that will appeal to audio, visual, and kinesthetic learners.

You can watch video testimony from teachers and administrators that work with kindergarten to high school students from throughout the nation on the home page, www.DontBullyOnline.com.  Click on the right hand video window entitled, “Administrator Feedback”.

Keith will show up to each school assembly early in order to discuss with administrators what they would like emphasized/addressed at their individual school.

Thank you for coming to Bankbridge Regional School and speaking with our middle & high school students. Our students have both behavioral and mental health issues and can be a difficult group to work with the students loved and were inspired by your presentation but most of all appreciated your openness and honesty. I look forward to you coming back our school in the future.

We brought Keith in to do a multi school/day tour in Southwestern Oregon.  Keith use of “serious comedy” really hooked the students and brought his positive message home. Keith was also extremely attentive to individual students who approached him after the assemblies.  Keith “hangs out” until he speaks with every student that wants to talk to him, no matter how long it takes.  During his tour several students with various mental health concerns reached out for help through Keith and school staff.  We are grateful for his caring manner.

You are one of the most gifted mental health and anti bullying speakers we have ever had.  Your combination of two tough topics was amazing.  After your assembly we had students contact the guidance office requesting help.
