The Fourth Turning and America's Next Rendezvous With Destiny -- Teaching Millennials, Our Next Hero Generation

A year ago (June 2005) I had the great pleasure of delivering a keynote to 400 elementary school teachers in San Antonio, Texas.  Watch the entire keynote below. 

The title of my keynote was America's Next Rendezvous With Destiny -- Teaching Millennials, Our Next Hero Generation

This keynote is based on the work of Neil Howe and William Strauss who authored an amazing book entitled The Fourth Turning - What The Cycles of History Tell Us About America's Next Rendezvous With Destiny.  I interviewed Neil Howe and have posted that interview here

The invitation to deliver this keynote came from Victor Herrera who is the director of The Center For Educational Leadership - Trinity University Basic School Center and his wife Kristy Herrera, both of whom are wonderful, caring people who have dedicated their lives to helping others.

I'm a former classroom teacher and have worked with many educators over the course of the last fifteen years so this was a huge opportunity for me.  And 400 teachers?!  Had you interviewed my elementary and middle school teachers back in the day, I seriously doubt any would have pictured me delivering a keynote at a teacher convention!  It was the standing ovation at the end that really touched me and helped me, once again, realize the work I love to do and the ideas I want to share really do touch people's lives.

My keynote was video taped by the North East Independent School District Media Production Dept (thank you guys!)
