A Testimonial from a teacher and a coach from Shepherd High School . . .
Carrie Winn Gauthier, SHS’s vice principal, is a stubborn woman… And I am glad she is… Last Friday our school was lucky enough to experience the life of Jeff Yalden… a motivational speaker… Carrie had tried to get him to Shepherd the last two years… This year she was allowed to bring him in… Our students and staff saw that it is okay to make mistakes… to have imperfections… to not succeed at everything… to have problems… They then learned the key is, “What are you going to do about it? Sit there and take it? Or get up and start fighting back?” Life is tough. It is going to knock us all over the place. Jeff made that clear with stories from his life, straightforward honesty, and a few, harmless, bits of profanity… Talking with my students after the assembly I learned he had connected… They told me things like: “He was so honest.” “He was so real.” “He was guy who had over come so much.” “He was just like one of us.” “It’s about time we got a real person in here to talk to us!” I have learned in 24 years of teaching that it is impossible to fool kids. They see right through fakes and dishonest people. I hope they also see how lucky they were Carrie is stubborn and fighting for what she believes is best for Shepherd students. Hopefully, it rubs off on our students and they will apply the messages learned to their own lives… Look out world if they do… Prouder than ever to be a Blue Jay…– Jay B. Gross, Teacher/Coach, Shepherd HS, MI
