Eric Thomas, Ph.D. is a world renowned speaker, author, pastor, and educator. ET, as he is better known, has captured the hearts and minds across the globe with his dynamic communication style and high-energy messages.
With over 20 years of real-life, in-the-trenches community activism experience, Eric is living proof of what tenacity, drive, and focus can produce when applied to properly; especially in the classroom. After taking 12 years to get a 4-year degree, ET went on to earn a Master's degree and Ph.D. in Education Administration from Michigan State University.
Eric's long standing success began with his award-nominated GED program and youth-focused nonprofit, "Break The Cycle, I Dare You". Building on the success of these initiatives, Eric developed Michigan State University's Advantage program, which helps improve the study habits and retention rates of high-risk college students.
Most recently, he created the international Urban Education Consultants, a nonprofit organization committed to finding solutions to close the achievement gap in inner-city schools through goal framing.

I met ET while on a quest to meet this man that so positively changed my son's outlook on life. Now, after working with Dr. Thomas and seeing him interact with students of all ages, I understand how his heartfelt and passionate message breaks through all the noise and inspires people to take charge and improve their lives!
JAMES N. GOENNER, Ph.D.
President and CEO, National Charter Schools Institute
The thought of motivation and education being a natural fit for me was very easy to see as I am a former coach. Therefore, when I discovered Eric Thomas' "When You Want To Succeed As Bad As You Want To Breathe" video in 2010, I knew I had to find some way to introduce it to all of the stakeholders at my school.
I have successfully implemented ETA videos, books, posters, and grind gear at three title one elementary schools in Texas over the past six years. Of which, all have each seen a tremendous upward shift in their student's performance. The use of motivational tools provided by Eric Thomas in my estimation has been a major factor in that positive upward trend.
Additionally, we have instituted in-depth video and book studies with our students, teachers, staff, and parents. After which, our teachers, staff, and parents all came away more empowered and dedicated to doing their respective parts in ensuring every student experienced a measure of educational success. I would highly recommend using the ETA Educational Empowerment series to empower every stakeholder that's involved with your school!
If you want the students and teachers at your school to take ownership and achieve more, Dr. Thomas is the man.
Principal of Peete Elementary School
Eric Thomas came to our high school and the impact felt among teachers and students was immed iate! Eric is highly motivational, engaging, and real. Students wouldn't let Eric out of the door as so many wanted to talk to him. Currently, we follow Eric online to continue utilizing and experiencing his influence. I would highly recommend Eric Thomas to visit your school.
Principal of Tecumseh High School
Dr. Thomas came and spoke to 550 employees of my school district. I had people from maintenance to administration and all in between saying that they can give more. "120" became a mantra for excellence within our district after ET's event. He challenged people that taught the Advanced Placement scholar to the often disciplined troubled youth. The overarching statement has been that this is the best start to the school year we have ever had. "ET is exactly what we need." A 24-year veteran who can retire at the end of this year said, "If we keep getting resources like this I may teach three more years." ET has helped to positively change the culture of our district in one 3-hour session.
Superintendent, Florence City Schools
"The Decision is Yours To Make. You have an opportunity to positively change the academic trajectory of every student who matriculates within your classroom. Different results require different actions. You already know the outcome your current curriculum will yield. School Days is your opportunity to make the difference in the lives of your students you've always wanted to, but didn't have the resources to effect.
As a lifelong educator, I'm incredibly familiar with the traditional materials we've used. And much like you, I was frustrated by the 'cookie cutter', 'one size fits all' content and approaches that yielded very little success. School Days was born out of my desire to give the best to our students so that they can, in turn, realize the 'best' that's in themselves. I've tested and employed this program to incredible success and wouldn't promote it if it was just a warmed up version of what's already on the books. I believe in this School Days program, and to that end, you have my word that I will personally walk you through every step of the program and be with you throughout both the transition and implementation of the School Days program within your current curriculum."
