Hi I’m Michael Herring

President of Personal Safety & Educational Development

Empowering parents, educators, and students has been the focus of my energies for the last 20+ years.  My ability to work collaboratively with school districts and educators to create highly engaging educational workshops has resulted in the development of over 100 partnerships throughout the United States.  Our workshops are specifically designed to provide supplemental support to both parents and educators to facilitate and ensure a successful learning experience for children in early-learning communities through high school. I welcome the opportunity to partner with you, your school district, and your parents.


Finding high-quality, content-driven workshops for parents and staff is a time-consuming endeavor for school districts, educators, and parent leaders. So, to save time, we’ve created sixteen interactive educational workshops, resulting in a high level of parent and staff engagement, and long-term sustainable partnerships.
