Tyler believes education is the great unifier and can change society for the better. The right culture is the most important thing a school can control to help motivate, empower, and equip young people to be successful in today's world. Take control of your classroom and help guide students to become the hero in their life, family, and community. With the right actions, resources, and motivation, teachers can create an engaging and learning-filling classroom environment. Utilizing technology and social media to help our students build the skills they need to excel in whatever job market the future brings. Being kind, hard-working, and positive can go further than any other motivator young people can hear, they just need the right person in their story to help them them listen.
