Keynotes, Workshops & Sessions:

Increasing Your Impact: Sharing Your Story to Reach More Students

At the core of every teacher is the desire and a need to reach and impact as many students as possible. That is what motivates us, what gives us joy, and what our purpose is. While teaching in itself allows an individual to reach hundreds if not thousands of students throughout a career, some educators want to do more. This session will explore how creating content and sharing your story can offer driven teachers the opportunity to expand their impact to millions of students. We will look at how a few educators have taken their passion for teaching and maximized their impact on students and education as a whole. This presentation will look at the impact sharing your story can have on education, and examine how to start, manage, and grow a platform to do this, without having to leave your classroom.
