Dave Burgess: Teach like a Pirate

Teach Like a PIRATE keynotes, seminars, and workshops arehigh-energy, interactive, and entertaining experiences that will leave your staff unbelievably inspired, motivated, and with the practical skills to dramatically increase student engagement.

My presentations are a unique blend of outrageously energetic performance art and magic, mixed with aninspirational message of how and why to become more passionate in the classroom. In addition, don’t expect a presentation filled with fluff, theory, and a boring PowerPoint; I demonstrate and model my engagement strategies as if the audience is my class and leave no doubt about how to apply the techniques in the real-world.

Not content with merely demonstrating my methods, I teach cutting-edge strategies for skyrocketing creativity so that participants will be able to design lessons to draw students into their content like a magnet. Teachers will leave with the ability to create a classroom experience that will have students knocking down the doors to get in.

I will work with your school, district, or organization to specially design the ultimate professional development experience for your audience and circumstances. The presentations are perfect for all grade levels and all content areas. I have successfully delivered professional development all across the nation to a wide variety of audiences ranging from small staffs in a classroom setting to opening keynotes for entire districts in giant multi-level auditoriums.
