Meet Jeff Kubiak, an educator, speaker & author of “One Drop of Kindness”
Kindness is an essential ingredient missing from today’s society. If we all take the time to think before we speak and act and use kindness to help inform our decisions, the world will become a much better place.
More about the Author
Jeff is the principal of Nelda Mundy Elementary School. He taught for ten years as an elementary school teacher in grades 4, 5, and 6 and has seven years of administrative experience. Jeff loves children’s literature and “One Drop of Kindness” is Jeff’s first published children’s book. He hopes to continue writing books that bring about character change and inspiring others to help make our world a better place.
Jeff works hard to push back against the old model of “Industrialized Education” and fight compliance. There is not a day that goes by that he is not looking ahead to improve teacher pedagogy, student engagement and digital access for all. Being a former world-class swimmer and coach, Jeff looks at education from perspectives that others don’t. Knowing what it takes to fail, struggle, win and go through the daily challenges that we all face (look at the ’88 Olympic Trials in swimming/Jeff Kubiak/200 Breaststroke).
