Jeff taught for ten years as an elementary school teacher in grades 4, 5, and 6 and has eight years of administrative experience. He strives to connect with students by bringing them real world experiences, getting to know them, engaging in lessons and play, and becoming a part of the learning process. Jeff has always looked at education from a different lens: as someone who hated and struggled with school. Jeff vows to always do his best to help increase opportunities for all students to feel heard, included, celebrated, challenged and safe. Jeff works hard to push back against the old model of education. He believes that equity, inclusion, compassion, and kindness should be embedded in schools, and societal norms. Jeff loves children's literature, and believes reading and writing are critical to overall academic growth. "One Drop of Kindness" was his first children's book. Jeff hopes that It's Me will open up conversations that empower those who have been marginalized, biased, or stereotyped. He hopes to continue writing books that inspire others to help make our world a better place. @jeffreykubiak #tsc #gogetit #onedropofkindness #kidsfirst #jeffkubiak

Jeff taught for ten years as an elementary school teacher in grades 4, 5, and 6 and has eight years of administrative experience. Jeff strives to connect with students by bringing real-world experiences to them, getting to know their names, engaging in lessons and play, and becoming a part of the learning process with them. He's always looked at education from a different lens: from someone who hated and struggled with school. Jeff vows to always do his best to help increase opportunities for all students to feel heard, noticed, celebrated, challenged, and safe. Jeff works hard to push back against the old model of "Industrialized Education" and fight compliance. There is not a day that goes by that he is not looking ahead to improve teacher pedagogy, student engagement, and digital access for all. Being a former world-class swimmer and coach, Jeff looks at education from perspectives that others don't. Knowing what it takes to fail, struggle, win, and go through the daily challenges that we all face (look at the '88 Olympic Trials in swimming/Jeff Kubiak/200 Breaststroke)."Kindness is an imperative component that is missing from our society. If we can use this book, and understand the importance that kindness makes every day, I believe we can all make a difference. For the most part, children want to be kind, but I've seen a Gus in every school I have worked at. That Gus may be a boy, girl, staff member, or even a parent. In schools especially, it is critical for us to embed kindness into everything we do, which will, in turn, improve our school and community climates.I am hoping that this book will positively impact each person that reads it and hope they will spread the word. Take part of a Random Drop of Kindness, or create your own ripple effect. One person at a time will change our world."
