Conquer your challenges and crush your goals with gratitude in-person, virtually, or hybrid!
Who’s Chris DT Gordon?
I am a faithful husband, father of three, online middle school special education teacher, professional international speaker, podcast host, co-author, contributing writer, runner, recommended Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do, and pop culture geek. I am also a survivor of necrotizing fasciitis (flesh-eating bacteria) who uses my story and message to inspire high schoolers and young adults to adopt The Attitude of Gratitude and positively affect their lives.
I help students develop a grateful attitude so they can lead powerfully impactful lives. I developed The Attitude of Gratitude as I recovered in the hospital, and it not only assisted me in my recovery, but I have also used it to accomplish several goals post-discharge.
“Chris’ attitude about his journey is incredible. His uplifting words, the delivery of his talk, and his compassion for paying it forward are inspiring!”– Nancy Gonzalez, NancyEncourages.com
I have almost 20 years of teaching experience; for the last eight years, I have instructed students as an online special education teacher.
I also possess years of acting and directing experience, which serves me well when engaging with large audiences.
I speak about rebounding from life-alerting experiences with a grateful attitude and using that mindset to accomplish ambitious personal goals.
I also instruct audiences to “pass on perfection, and go for greatness.” Chasing perfection is often a futile task, yet anyone can attain greatness with consistency and perseverance.
Besides possessing many years of teaching experience, I have also directed several high school theatre productions, coached soccer, Mock Trial, and cross country, and facilitated community and school activity groups.
