Essex Valley School was recently visited by Mr. Gian Paul Gonzalez, a local teacher and motivational speaker. Mr. Gonzalez is best known for his work with the New York Giants prior to their Super Bowl win in 2011. He has since gone on to speak for numerous sports teams, professionals, and young people about being "ALL IN" in their commitment to a goal, value, or belief.
Mr. Gonzalez's presentation focused on empowering our students, and encouraging them to remain focused on their goals through both success and adversity. His positive message was motivating for both students and staff alike as we began another challenging school year!
