Jedlie has been inspiring students throughout the United States & Puerto Rico since 1983. His award winning Children’s Book “The Great Maritini” has been named “one of the top seven books that teach kids kindness” by ChildrensPublishing.com and has received “Story Monster Approval” from Story Monster Ink Magazine.
His “Reading With Your Kids” Podcast has inspired families around the World to spend more time reading together and was nominated for the iHeartRadio Best Kids and Family Podcast Award
And his brand new school assembly program “We Will ROAR – Respect Others And Read” will help your students and teachers make this the best school year ever!
In this exciting and totally interactive show Jedlie will inspire students to choose to be respectful of themselves, their school and everyone they meet. He will also inspire them to read aloud each day, preferably with a caregiver, and to visualize what they are reading.
“We loved Jedlie. Before the show Jedlie asked me what issues we were facing at our school. He tailored his message to address those issues, so it really hit home with our students. I will have Jedlie back again.”
Mrs Carolyn Fasano, Professional School Counselor, Westridge School, Woodbridge, VA
We know that choosing to be respectful and to treat others with the respect we want others to treat us is a great first step towards building a safe and caring learning environment.
We also know that these reading strategies help improve emotional intelligence and increase empathy.
“Jedlie came to our school and gave the most entertaining presentation to our students. We were all engaged and enthralled from beginning to end. His show helped every child to feel important and valued!”
Mary Watson, Principal, St Patrick School, McEwen, TN
A major highlight of the show will come when Jedlie reveals one of the magical secrets he learned from reading books. He will also reveal how books have made a difference in his life. “Books” he explains “have helped me to travel back in time to discover what life was like for my great grandparents.” He will share how his family hosts international students in his home, and how books have helped him travel to different parts of the World, to learn more about the cultures these students come from.”
“Jedlie’s school assembly program supports our mission to provide a safe and caring learning environment for all of our students.”
Mrs Mary Maloney, Principal, St Rose of Lima School, Newtown, CT
“We Will ROAR – Respect Others And Read!!!” is adaptable to be appropriate for students from Kindergarten through Grade Eight. The show is typically 45 to 55 minutes in length. It can be presented just about anywhere. The show is completely self-contained, travels with its own sound system and is fully insured.
“Jedlie’s school assembly is wonderful. The kids and teachers really enjoyed the magic and were inspired by his message.”
