There are many speakers around the United States, but Jerry Ackerman presents anti-bullying in a whole new manner. Ackerman is an anti-bullying speaker who travels around the globe, expressing his feelings about bullying amongst schools in a different way. He gets students, teachers, principles, and staff to get up and do “the mower,” an energetic up beat dance that has a deeper meaning to it than just the dance.
“If you can do something like this in this room and be crazy,” explains Ackerman, “maybe you are someone who can stand up and lead.”
Ackerman does not promote just going with the flow of things. He believes that “if you aren’t part of the solution you are part of the problem.”
