I am writing this letter of recommendation for David J. Flood, who has worked with our 6th, 7th, and 8th graders here at Northport Middle School for two years as a youth speaker and motivator. He is funny and engaging and well received by the students and staff. Mr. Flood’s assembly, “We’re All Alike,” serves as an emotional call to action for our students, and highlights empathy, kindness, and personal responsibility. As part of his assembly program he also visits our classrooms to facilitate small-group discussions to draw on student experience while they were fulfilling the challenges he presented during the assembly.
Mr. Flood also leads a workshop on diversity entitled “A Look Inside,” which supports our DASA initiative of creating a proactive emotional literacy program. I highly recommend Mr. Flood to any school that is looking to enhance their social-emotional learning program. Please feel free to call me at 631-262-6750 if you have any questions about Mr. Flood’s programs.
