Using self-deprecating humor, audience participation, musical parodies, and his amazing ability as a storyteller, TOJJ shares what it’s like to be emotionally crushed by bullying as a child and teenager, only to endure a life-altering physical disability as a young adult. Opening himself up to your students in a way that makes them laugh and earns their trust, TOJJ then shares his experiences, and what he’s learned from them, to help students discover practical strategies they can start applying immediately…
… all while they laugh and sing along!
