One teacher’s journey from losing it all to learning to Speak-Up!

20 years ago Professor X received a phone call that changed his life… Today we join Professor X in his entertaining master class of finding the hero within. A cross between Mr. Rogers and a Drill Sergeant; Professor X will lead us on a journey back in time to pay tribute to the teachers and events that built him. He promises a wild ride of adventure and stories about the life of a special education kid named Johnny Boy, who cultivates and nourishes his roots to grow to become a teacher and a hero to fight for his students’ future!
