Founder / Chairman
Darryl Gooden of Arizona is the Founder of Keeping Teachers Teaching and Authentic Passion. Along with these achievements, he is also a Motivational and Inspirational Speaker, determined to better the lives of those who seek his service. Before he was able to take on the responsibility of helping others, Darryl had to overcome his own barriers. Just one of 15 children, Darryl was raised by his single mother in Shelby, Mississippi. As a child, he was diagnosed with ADHD, a speech impairment as well as a learning disability. Due to this, Darryl’s mother spent much of her time with him in order to help with his behavioral problems. Teachers would also lovingly devote their time to him. These acts of kindness shown to Darryl eventually led to his own willingness to show compassion to others. Read More….
