Professional Development Speaker and Keynote Speaker for Teachers and Staff - Jordan H. Davis
Our educators are the soil for the trees that are our students. We must pour into our educators, for they are the ones that foster supportive, fruitful learning environments.
In most educational settings, good teaching is encouraged at best. Policies and school leadership deprioritize teacher development, leaving educators burned out and underprepared. Some educators lack the pedagogical and technological skills needed to yield positive learning outcomes in today's classrooms. Applying teaching and learning theory to real teaching situations is crucial, and creating community among students who are still recovering from the social isolation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic can be a daunting task. How can we close opportunity gaps and improve student outcomes overall through good teaching?
How Jordan can help you solve it:
Jordan works directly with educators and administrators to help transform their teaching, strengthen the curriculum, and improve their interactions with students. If your educators are on the verge of burnout, want new ideas for how to transform their classroom, or need a spark of motivation to continue their great work, JD is your speaker.
