Keynote: Bringing Joy Back Into Education
Affectionately known as “Jim Carrey with a Ph.D.,” Dr. Danny Brassell (www.DannyBrassell.com) is an internationally-acclaimed speaker and best-selling author of 15 books, including Read, Lead & Succeed and The Reading Makeover, based on his popular TEDx talk. He is the co-founder of the world’s top reading engagement system for struggling and reluctant readers, www.ReadBetterin67Steps.com.
Teachers are kid-people. They do not teach for the pay or daily accolades from society; they teach because they care about kids. The standardized testing craze has terrified students and led many great teachers to quit. Come join Danny as he reminds teachers of their importance in the everyday development of children. He’ll remind you how to laugh, sing, dance and play in order to bring the joy back into your classroom.
