What Jeff Yalden Does*

In his own words, “My work is to get inside our kids and prepare them not only for scholastic tests but for the real-life trials that lie ahead. I capture their attention with stories that educate and stimulate, messages they can’t help but remember. Psychologists call it the “flash bulb memory,” these a-ha moments that come with emotional charge. Kids are glued to their seats, eager to hear more—staying after, in fact, to ask questions. They are receptive to my message because I speak in a language they can understand.”
