Over the past nineteen years, Andre Daughty (pronounced Daugh like how) has established himself as a highly-regarded urban educator from Oklahoma City, OK. As an elementary school teacher, he helped to improve test scores at a low-performing school in need of improvement to state recognition. That year, he taught a class of over fifty fourth grade students by himself. He continued to serve in education in capacities of leadership, coaching and as a professor.
Andre has been a public speaker, delivered conference and program keynotes, professional development workshops, parenting seminars and student assemblies. He enjoys sharing strategies to create and build culture withing a school and organization, bringing awareness on today’s generation, understanding and developing attitudes of at-risk student populations, and motivating excellence in the classroom and school with students of color, particularly young black male students. He takes the complicated and makes it simple to understand as he pulls from his experiences in education to take his audience on an emotional and humorous journey. His engaging, yet practical style has earned him invitations as speaker in various arenas. Andre’s most important goal is to allow the listener to see things from a different perspective. He does this by helping to achieve personal and professional goals in practical ways that produce reflection, then change. His ability to connect with people from every walk of life allows him to deliver hilarious, yet, thought-provoking presentations, workshops and experiences.
Andre Daughty is married to his wife, Danielle, and is the father of their two children, Jaiden and Cambria. He earned his B.S. degree in Elementary Education from Langston University and his M.A. degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Central Oklahoma.
