  Shaun Derek: Now Booking Back to School Presentations

Now more than ever, young people have the power to change the world... And it's literally at their fingertips. But with great power comes great responsibility. In this timely presentation, Shaun Derik recounts his most troublesome years in grade school and how feeling "small" had a big and negative impact on his confidence, decision-making and how he treated others.

Through music, comedy and movement Derik will discuss how locating your "inner giant" will give you strength to be bigger than your circumstances, build your confidence and connect with those who are healthy for your future.

From addressing the pressures of casual drug use to the stresses of performing in school, Small World, BIG YOU is high octane, humorous and will equip your young people with the tools necessary for your students to become agents of change in their homes, schools, and communities.

  What To Do With Aggressive Parents and Others?

Sometimes it feels like everyone's a critic. Whether there's an aggressive parent or an internal personnel issue, an administrator's job carries a unique set of challenges. But when the problem becomes especially personal, you may ask, "Do I really have to put up with this?" That's a fair question. If a parent spreads a lie about you on social media, isn't that defamation? If the parent angrily confronts you in person and badgers you, can you get a restraining order or issue a "no trespass" letter, prohibiting them from school grounds? When a school district employee makes you tear your hair out, isn't that a hostile work environment? These questions create an interesting stew of legal questions, which are slightly more complicated to answer than you might think. Click here to read the full article.
