Summer Splash 2022 with GERRY BROOKS!

We are so excited to host Gerry Brooks for our 3rd annual Summer Splash Effective Schools Summit On June 1, 2022!

Gerry Brooks has been an educator for 25 years, beginning as a third grade teacher in Palm Bay, FL. He earned his masters in administration and has been an elementary principal for 15 years. Originally using humorous videos to encourage his staff, Gerry has become a national encourager for teachers through social media and speaking events. He is a voice for teachers, but his passion is leading others to be responsible for their own personal climate and culture in the workplace. His book, “Go See the Principal,” outlines strategies for taking on this responsibility. Gerry and his wife, Kelly, have 3 adult children and live in Lexington, KY.

This session will fill up fast so register yourself, share the information with a co-worker, and plan to have a "Suriously" good time!
