Meet Me in the Middle

Explore, Engage, and Embark with NJ Middle Level Educators

March 14, 2014

Join us and be inspired and energized by conference keynote Dave Burgess, author of "Teach Like a Pirate: Increase Student Engagement, Boost Your Creativity, and Transform Your Life as an Educator." Dave's presentations are a unique blend of outrageously energetic performance art and magic, mixed with an inspirational message of how and why to become more passionate in the classroom. Dave demonstrates and models his engagement strategies as if the audience is his class, leaving no doubt about how to apply the techniques in the real-world.
