Relentless: Changing Lives by Disrupting the Educational Norm (Paperback)
Hamish Brewer (aka the Tattooed Skateboarding Principal) grew up in a home disrupted by poverty, addiction, and family dysfunction. He understands the feelings of fear, lostness, and desperation that overwhelm too many children today--because that was his life. That experience is what drives him to work relentlessly to empower people living in the toughest areas to envision and create a better future for themselves.
Disrupt the norm. That is the challenge Hamish, a Nationally Distinguished Principal, calls educators, students, families, and communities to accept. And as he authentically shares his life experiences and adventures in this book, you, too, will be inspired to . . .
Believe that something bigger and better is possible.
Pursue your best, whatever it takes.
Transform your school.
Become the educator you always dreamed of being.
Leave a legacy that pushes others to achieve their best
Relentless is more than a motto. It's a mission of total passion and purpose. And it's the only way to win at work and at life.
Are you ready to take your life and work to the next level?
