Joe knows these kids! You can tell in the ease that he speaks and discusses them.


Wounded Student Conference

Also enjoyed that he spent a good amount of time on strategies to work with them. Most presenters just discuss the problem (that’s the easy part). Joe taught us or started us on track to deal with the problem.

Your work on the wounded student is profound. We appreciate your time and your materials but more importantly we appreciate the work you are doing and the support and acknowledgment of the importance in finding a way to reach all students.


Carmela, Principal

I wish I had been able to attend this seminar before I began my teaching career in 1973. It would have changed how I dealt with students. As a former principal, I wish I had one more in-service day to have Joe tell my faculty what every educator needs to know. How to identify and positively impact wounded students.


John, Past member of the NASSP and OASSA for twenty-two years

His presentation was not only energizing, but timely, insightful, and prescriptive. He spoke with passion and held the complete attention of every member. More than one person thanked me for bringing him to our school and that rarely happens.


Ben, Principal

My own professional experience includes in-home counseling, therapeutic foster care support, residential treatment, juvenile detention crisis intervention, in-patient and partial hospitalization. I know without a doubt that all of the students I have worked with needed a caregiver that was committed to the principles Joe teaches and lives by.


William, MA, PCC

The presenter was excellent. Great ideas of how to work with wounded students.

Enjoyed topic. Really hit home that we need more teachers to teach social skills and inclusion and empathy. We need to mandate teachers to come to this class!! I LOVED it!

Joe knew his material. This was very effective in the way I could understand and connect with children.

Wow! Awesome! Loved it! God Bless! And thank you for all you are doing. From a youth group leader who wants relationships with kids so they can connect with church and school and not somewhere else.
