“Tim Conners is an incredible speaker I’ve had the opportunity to work with as principal at two different elementary school buildings. He shares a message of positivity and eternal optimism that inspires staff and students. He inspires to change the world.  Through his work he is doing just that.  He is an inspiration to me as I daily strive to adhere to the words he once shared w/ me, “Word hard.  Be nice.  Never give up.” This young man exemplifies the very best of the human spirit and it is an honor to hear him speak.  You will be inspired to be a better person and to make this world a better place.”
