Keynote and international consultant for conferences, USA state departments of education, intermediate service units, school districts and individual schools

Imagine classroom after classroom where students are pressuring the teacher to teach more instead of the teacher pressuring the students to learn more. This current reality can become your reality.

From keynote speaker to workshop leader to follow-up facilitator Lee Jenkins is one of the most versatile speakers you can have at your next event. He will make you cry, laugh and think very deeply. Most of all he will provide help drenched with hope. He will not insult your audiences with hype.


"I have had the honor of working with Dr. Lee Jenkins for over a decade. His speaking about maintaining students intrinsic motivation having them collect and analyze their own data is simple, but ever so powerful. You must have him as your next speaker."

- Catherine White, Executive Director of Staff Development (Retired)
Fulton County School District, Georgia

"When students own their own learning, it transforms how they participate in the education process. Lee Jenkins’ How to Create a Perfect School makes sure students actively participate in learning, that they know at all times where they are in the learning process and what they need to know to achieve their goals. It is a powerful, powerful learning system for all grade levels, all students."

- Montreal Bell, Administrator
Fulton County Schools, Georgia

"The focus of Lee Jenkins’ process is entirely on long-term memory – no more cram/forget or know it today, relearn it tomorrow, or start over next year."

- Barb Friesth, Staff Developer, Retired
Educational Service Unit 7, Nebraska

"The Jenkins Curve has impacted my career for the past 20 years. His teaching not only addresses the problem; he provides SOLUTIONS."

- Bill Watkins, Superintendent
Marcola School District, Oregon

"First of all I want to state that what Lee Jenkins teachers just plain makes sense. We educators are bombarded with so many suggestions and requirements that having a process that makes sense to students, parents and teachers is powerful."

- Chris Crelia, Principal
Wilson Elementary School, Oklahoma

"Lee Jenkins’ process has made the single most difference in my teaching in over 40 years in the classroom. The first time I heard Lee for an hour I was so excited I spent all night working to implement what I learned!"

- Theresa Corcoran, Grade 5 Teacher
Graber Elementary School, Kansas

"One of the most helpful aspects of Lee’s work is it helps secondary teachers drop external rewards and restore the intrinsic motivation they started kindergarten with."

- Tracy Heilman Kennedy
Director of School Improvement, Nebraska

"The results from Lee Jenkins’ speaking have been amazing: zero pushback from any staff members, everyone sees the value of his teaching, we do far more analysis with our data than ever before, far less instructional time is wasted simply because students are remembering."

- Will Black
Assistant Superintendent, Kentucky
