Mr. Rodge's Neighborhood

SUCCESS Is A Process, Not An Event!


Social Emotional Learning Speaker/Author & Supporter for Children With Special Needs

Message from Mr. Rodge:


I want to wish you well during this unique, trying time in which we are all on the front lines battling COVID-19.  I can't think of anything in my lifetime that has even come close to affecting pretty much EVERYONE like this situation has; 9/11 was pretty significantly, but, in reality, did not even come close to the universal impact of COVID-19.  


I would love to support your program in any way I can.  Please feel free to reach out if you feel I can be of assistance.






Mr. Rodge is an Army veteran, author, educator, & high content speaker who has booked nationally.   He has a passion for working with people, having been an educator for over a decade & an Army medic/mental health specialist.  While willing and able to relate to all audiences, Mr. Rodge's platform targets at-risk students and their educators, college students (first generation, in particular), and those that society has unfortunately written off.  He is also a champion of children with special needs, with his oldest daughter being disabled and having been a special education teacher.  He feels it is important to provide insights concerning children and adults with disabilities. 


Mr. Rodge has published his first book titled Success Is A Process, Not An Event: 7 Keys To Understanding & Mastering The Process in which he shares his experiences as a soldier & educator to help understand the process. He offers workshops, presentations, & coaching based on concepts from his book that incorporate the topics of:

  • Social Emotional Learning (resilience, character, growth mindset)

  • Leadership

  • Diversity & Inclusion

  • Personal Growth

  • Wellness (emotional & physical)

  • Education Strategies (relationship building, classroom management)

  • Parenting (special education students)


His goal is to provide interactive, practical, & thought-provoking engagements to help audiences find and stay on the path to their destiny.
