Esther Wilkison is on a mission to help teachers be effective—both in how they follow God and in how they teach. She’s no ordinary educational speaker because she’s no ordinary learner. She knows the world of nonstandard learners from the inside out. Struggle and failure are part of her story, but the dominant themes have more to do with God’s grace, persistence, and success.
Esther put her degrees in Elementary Education and Biblical Counseling to good use as a classroom teacher in a variety of grades and settings before transitioning to teaching teachers.
For over a decade Esther has been speaking to educators at schools and conventions from Miami to Manilla. Currently Esther inspires educators as a speaker, author, and learning coach.
