Dave Burgess Teaches Like a Pirate and Inspires Teachers Ep 27
Dave Burgess is a keynote speaker, educator, professional development innovator, and author of Teach Like a Pirate ( audio book book is now available), as well as an extensive network of teachers and creators who are changing the face and perception of teacher involvement in the classroom. A quote from Dave, “Pirates are daring, adventurous, and willing to set forth into uncharted territories with no guarantee of success. They reject the status quo and refuse to conform to any society that stifles creativity and independence. They are entrepreneurs who take risks and are willing to travel to the ends of the earth for that which they value.” ~ Dave Burgess
Transparency has been a key to my classroom. My treasure chest would be full of honesty, excitement, enthusiasm, and being passionate. Energy is a must. When I feel tired at the end of teaching, I know I gave a good effort, and Dave definitely advocates for a tapping into energy in the classroom to draw in students like magnets to engaging lessons. Dave was certainly fired up in our interview, no surprise, and brought a lot of heart, and an exclusive story about Dave’s development in entertainment and performance before education.
