Craig spoke to our students and provided a Professional Development for our Faculty/Staff at the Heights. I had several teachers in tears afterwards telling me how they could see many of our students as you spoke and began to question themselves as to whether or not they did all they could do to help them. It was such an eye opening experience for us all! We are forever grateful and thankful for you and your message.

Craig is a speaker all educators must hear. I just started and finished reading his book today. I have heard many speak about education but this man is the truth. I have not stop quoting him yet!! I can't wait for my school to ask me for an overview of my conference experience all my praises go to Craig J. Boykin.

This was the perfect ending to our four days of learning together. His passion for children and education is contagious. I am more energized than ever to serve children and support teachers. The Lord dropped that mantra in my heart. It truly encapsulates my purpose and desire.

As a veteran teacher I don't look forward to Professional Development. It is normally something you have done with a different name. Craig is one of the most engaging speakers I have had the pleasure to see. He takes a troubling problem in society and adds some humor and real life experience. He also has a keen insight to education due to the fact his wife is an educator.

I have told anyone who will listen about how incredible your story is. I have also lent my copy to people so they could see a different perspective of their role as educators. Thank you for being a speaker who is honest, makes us laugh and cry! I hold your speech as one of the highlights of my teaching careers and I will take the wisdom you imparted with me always.

OMG!!!!!! I have never experienced a Conference or Professional Development speaker that was so empowering and transparent. Craig J. Boykin is one of the GREATEST presenters ever. There was NEVER a dull moment during his presentation. He will take you to CHURCH!!!!! Thank you for being real and caring about Parents, Students, Teachers and Education

If you have an opportunity to listen to Craig J. Boykin speak, go do it. Reminded me why I got into education. Thank You

One of the strongest but student centered presentations I have witnessed. You bring to the table something for everyone but most importantly you remind us that it is our duty to educate children, all children!


Justin Smith

Craig is in a few words an amazing speaker that gets what is going on inside the lives of our students and professionals in the school setting. He came to our campus last year and completely changed the atmosphere within a matter of minutes. If you want to make an impact at your campus, call Craig J. Boykin. #wallbreaker

I look at teaching from an entire different perspective since I've witnessed this incredible presentation from Mr. Craig Boykin! He truly inspired me to become a better educator, but most importantly a better ME! At the beginning of the semester, I take time out time to learn my students and I try to gain a sense of their background. Mr. Boykin speeches will empower you to conquer and revamp the educational world one student at a time. His presentation was sooo good that I had to have a double dose in the same day! I don't think it was a dry eye in the place!

Truly an inspirational and touching story. You will never look at your students the same again.
