A WORD from Dr. Mabry
I am Dr. Tommie Mabry, founder of Tommie Mabry Company and Best Selling Author of A Dark Journey To a Light Future and If Tommie Can Do It, We Can Do It.
I am striving to give educators and students a true look at many factors that daunt academic achievement. My platform tackles the experiences and challenges that students face in communities and educational environments.
By focusing on real-life topics such as; Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), Trauma, Bullying, Life Skills, Classroom Management, and more, it gives teachers a positive outlook on teaching and learning how childhood adversities affect students' persistence and resilience levels.
In my opinion, Tommie is one of a few whose inspiration and words of wisdom can reach even some of the more troubled young people in our society.
