TEACHER / STAFF KEYNOTE
Preparation. Performance. Passion. The preparation part of this presentation seems obvious—a credential for teachers and training certificates for certified staff. But the real preparation comes from life and life skills because we are teaching life, and it’s good to reflect on that. The performance takes many forms and is usually not about “performing” as in acting or speaking. No, this performance is usually about using all your knowledge and skills to find what works for each student you face. It is a thankless job done alone because when you perform, it is always done through your students. Finally, passion. Without it, nothing happens. With it, the world changes. Where does it come from? Where does it go? And how do we get it back? Those are the final questions to be answered; Mike and his audience look for the answers them together.
