One to the First Power
There have been several famous individuals credited for the quote, “People don’t care what you know, until they know that you care.” Regardless of which author you choose to recognize, this quote holds a special message. In 2000, new college graduate Stephanie Heald entered a fifth-grade classroom and wasn’t exactly sure what she was doing, but she knew she it was her calling to make a difference for those in her presence.
Dr. Heald first began developing, “One to the First Power” in 2013 after she witnessed an incident where her vehicle was struck several times in crossfire. It was then that she decided to share her own message in hopes of making a positive impact in the world.
As a classroom teacher, an administrator for several high stakes’ nationwide education initiatives, to now an Assistant Professor in the field of higher education, Dr. Heald has truly seen the power all individuals have in impacting others, ultimately making the world a better place. Educators particularly have the power to make a difference for their students, families, and communities, and once they understand the power they have in their role, they can elevate learning experiences. One to the First Power is an education consulting company that provides services for schools, organizations, scholar-athletes, and foundations. Dr. Heald presents locally and nationally using a goal driven approach for professional development, mentoring, and speaking tailored for the audience.
Dr. Heald shares her personal time supporting aspiring teachers, youth organizations and foundations. A former supervisor describes her as “Someone you just want to be around because of her heart, experiences and contagious personality. Her presence truly lights up the room and makes people want to know more. She leads the organization by living that example.”
