Beth Rondeau Deacon
The 7TH DOOR
As I reflect on my three years as a maximum-security teacher, I am constantly reminded of what happened behind Door 7. There were tears, growth, teamwork, struggles, long hours of studying, failures and successes and so much more behind Door 7, all because my students were "Brave Enough to Make a Change". When you believe in someone, you never know what can happen. I believed in my students and they began believing in themselves.
My proudest moment with these students was that as each one graduated, he asked whom he could help next. I truly saw how powerful the ripple effect can be.
I was gifted a new set of eyes, and a new appreciation for life behind Door 7, and I am forever changed and grateful.
I started my new speaking business, The 7th Door, to motivate educators, business teams, and others to optimize on opportunities
and value risks. I provide techniques for connecting with students, colleagues, and others. Through storytelling, mindfulness practices, and group engagement we collaborate to achieve common objectives.
Sometimes life can be hectic; however, it is essential to take time to engage with others. Take a moment to compliment someone; a joke or simple hello can show appreciation. A small gesture is more powerful than you may realize. Create the environment not just for them but for yourself.
