He is a highly sought after keynote speaker well known for his outrageously energetic performance style and inspirational, yet practical, message. Dave is also the president of Dave Burgess Consulting, Inc., a disruptive publishing company specializing in innovative, creative books and professional development programs designed to transform education and uplift educators to reach their full potential.(http://daveburgess.com/teach-like-a-pirate/) Mr. Burgess inspired us to look at teaching in a different way. He told us about the Passion and Immersion that he uses in his classes and related it to our content areas. He finished up with a question/answer session and threw in a couple of Math Magic Tricks.
