Earlington Teachers Facetime with Author Dave Burgess

On Monday August 7, 2017, the Earlington staff had a Google Hangout conversation with Dave Burgess. Dave Burgess is the New York Times Best Selling author of Teach Like a Pirate and co-author of P is for Pirate. 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.( 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.
