Marc Hoberman

His inspirational bestselling memoir: Adversity Defeated: Turn Your Struggles into Strengths tells Marc's story: He was diagnosed with epilepsy at the age of 16 after a stressful move from Yonkers, New York to Florida.

His story follows his experiences up to the present day where he has taught for over 33 years and helped many teens and parents navigate difficulties of topics ranging from illnesses, bullying, academics, test anxiety, and more.

Participants will learn how to deal with stressful situations. Venues will have a program tailored to their needs including the following: Assemblies, classroom discussions, author writing process workshop.

Whether your audience is teens or their parents, Marc's story will resonate with a wide range of participants. His expertise in education combined with experience with his own illness (and how he would not allow it to define him) will be inspirational for all who hear his story.

As an English teacher for more than 30 years and camp administrator and consultant for almost as long, I have come to realize that children today need to learn how to deal with the often unexpected struggles in their lives. I wrote my memoir to help teens and their parents navigate through myriad issues that often confront them when they least expect it. Bullying, drug use, depression, and teen suicide have touched the lives of far too many young people; it's important for them to see that there are ways to avoid the negative outcomes that some have experienced.
