Episode 18 - Teach Better Talk Podcast

Motivational speaker, educational publisher, and best-selling author of “Teach Like A Pirate,” Dave Burgess chats with us about finding our own story, and why he won’t do a “part 2” of his book.

Dave encourages us all to focus on getting better, not being perfect, and reminds us that it’s not always about the scoreboard; it’s about knowing you did everything you could to become the best you are capable of becoming.
