The 2018-2019 school year is quickly approaching! Are your teachers ready, motivated and excited for the new school year to begin? Do your teachers usually need a mid-year pick me up? Or would you like to close the school year on a positive note?
If your answer to any of the three above questions is yes, then you might want to enlist the help of an expert to help energize your teachers and build momentum for a successful year. One way that you can get everyone on the same page is to invite a guest speaker to your school.
Motivational speakers can help:
- Inspire new ways of thinking and solving problems.
- Share new ideas and techniques in education.
- Provide inspiration through personal stories and narratives.
- Give a new perspective on challenges or potential issues.
- Show your team that you care and are invested in them.
There are several outstanding motivational speakers and groups that you can call on, and today I’d like to introduce you to one of them—my friend and colleague, Jim Malanowski. Jim is a seasoned educator with over 45 years of experience as a curriculum director, assistant principal, department chair, headmaster, principal, motivational speaker, and writer. As principal, his school was chosen as the 2016 most positive high school in Georgia.
As a motivational speaker, Jim is always well received, engaging and charismatic. He shares this real-life expertise with educators through an unassuming, yet powerful, presentation style. His personal nature, commitment to the education profession, and passion for “what’s best for kids” comes through effortlessly.
In addition to motivational talks, Jim also provides coaching, workshops, and courses where he shares his expertise to help train and prepare teachers for instructional improvement that positively impacts the lives of students.
