Jacki has  20+ years’ experience as a teacher and 13 years’ experience as a mom. She can now add motivational speaker to her resume!  Since its creation in the fall of 2014, she’s brought the Kindness Matters message to over 13,000 students! She has the insight to help kids see how powerful their words are and how they can change someone’s life with just a simple act of kindness. No one admits to being a bully, but everyone recognizes that they can be nicer to the person next to them. Kindness Matters is not just another “anti-bullying” campaign. Instead, it’s a PRO-KINDNESS message that shows young people the power of their words and the power of KINDNESS! Jacki would love to come to your school to help your kids see how KINDNESS MATTERS!
