Anthony Ianni "CENTERED"

For more information about Anthony Ianni or his book Centered please use the link above.

Our school convocation was a huge success! Anthony Ianni was incredibly engaging and had an amazing message to share! We would like to thank Leslie Brown (HSE Autism Specialist) for working with our school district to bring Anthony Ianni to FJH and many other HSE schools. We would also like to thank FJH PTO President, Tabbatha Collier for making March Disabilities Awareness Month a priority at FJH. Finally, we would like to thank our students and staff!! Our students displayed their CHARGER P.R.I.D.E by giving Anthony the respect he deserves. Convocations can be challenging, but our students and staff were flexible and made this event amazing. See stories and pictures below.

I wanted to share that my 7th grade students and I had some encouraging conversations after the convocation today. The students found Anthony to be an incredibly engaging speaker with a very good message that resonated with them.

They were also excited that everyone in the audience was so respectful. MANY students commented that they were glad that everyone was "acting right." I was hopeful that our first convo after two+ years would be positive and my expectations were exceeded thoroughly. I loved sitting with the kids and seeing/hearing their reactions.

Please tell the PTO that I am thankful for this opportunity today and that I truly know that the message was heard.
