We connect what you’re teaching to what they will face in real life.

By helping students understand their value and self-worth, our curriculum connects the dots between where they are (i.e. your classroom) and where they see themselves in the future.

Speak Life Essentials develops each student’s self-awareness and motivation to improve, ensuring they have the confidence and wherewithal to work hard and make good decisions. Our curriculum also readies them to apply these skills in order to thrive in new academic, interpersonal, and professional experiences.

Our curriculum reinforces your expectations for student achievement.

When your students find the value in what you are teaching and how it relates to their goals, it is then that graduation rates will increase and behavior infractions will decrease.

“As a graduate of the public school system in Atlanta, GA, I know what it means to have educators that believed in me—people that saw my value, before I could see it in myself. Educators that took the time to expose me to new ideas and opportunities, while showing me what it takes to accomplish my dreams. Many of them are the catalyst for what I am doing now. Like you, they are the unsung heroes. Those that inspire and uplift others, while equipping them with the confidence and means to succeed. The educators in my life understood that no matter where you were from, your background, or your status, that with high expectations and the right tools, all things are possible. They were innovators and thought leaders that changed my life for the better.

Speak Life Essentials was created with educators like you in mind, those that make it their mission to impact and change lives. We look forward to supporting you in your efforts! ”
