The "I Can" Lady

By Robin Aaron

With a name like Mamie and a barrel full of jokes and good humor, how could a person not cheer on local educators? The multi-district gathering of school faculty and staff held Monday, Aug. 15, took place to provide a final boost before the first day of school for the 2011-2012 semester begins.

Mamie McCullough, a motivational and inspirational keynote speaker known as the "I Can" lady and author of several popular books, including I Can. You Can, Too!, Get it Together — And Remember Where You Put It, and I'm Not Waving ... I'm Drowning made a stop in New Boston to speak to the New Boston Independent School District (ISD), Hooks ISD and Avery ISD staffs.

“At a time when schools are dealing with budget cuts, reduced staffing, and a wide array of societal problems,” Superintendent Gary VanDeaver said, “she was a breath of fresh air.”

With her own inspiring story of overcoming poverty and grief, Mamie asked teachers to make a decision to begin this year with a winning attitude and view each student as a possibility.

McCullough, who grew up as one of nine children in a poor family who lost her father and was forced to grow up on welfare, overcame many challenges and eventually became Mamie McCullough Ph.D.
