Award winning educator Dr. Marvin Thompson (Dr. T.) has over 20 years experience serving as a classroom teacher, assistant principal, principal, superintendent and an educational curriculum consultant for districts and communities around the United States and abroad. Thompson was featured in OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network's award winning docu-series, "Blackboard Wars."
Motivating and bringing "clarity" to empowering leadership is one of Dr. T's many strengths. In working with school leaders, teachers, students, and parents, he has guided communities to find connections that lead to positive change. Dr. T believes that the school community is a "microcosm of our society". In that belief, the things we do in our schools not only impact society, but can negate progress of schools.
Leadership, decision-making, and personal power, are key elements of each presentation. Woven in are the "common sense" and "logical" views that get audiences reflective and engaged.
"Dr. Thompson is someone that I truly respect as he truly cares about the students he is in charge of. The media needs to focus on more people like Dr. T instead of ignorance and stupidity." - Marvin O. McLarty Jr
