Tired of the same boring Staff Development Speaker?
Come on, man! Your staff deserves better.
If they’re complaining about a presenter reading off the very same handouts they had given to all staff in attendance, reading off a powerpoint presentation, or better yet, telling your teachers how to be a better teacher, you need to think about a new presenter.
Are you ready for an in-service for staff members that validates and inspires them to teach for the very reason they chose to become a teacher in the first place? Then you need Jeff Yalden. He’s engaging, interactive and fun.
A Journey of ‘Who We Are’, ‘What We Do’, and the ‘Importance of our Influence Every Day’
Let’s Talk About WHY We Teach
Jeff is a lifelong educator who has taught and coached at the high school level. Jeff understands that teachers periodically need to refocus on why they chose to teach. As a strong advocate for teachers and how hard they work, Jeff validates their presence, how hard they work, and the difference they make in the lives of their students every day.
His message is a lot about his mental health and what he’s learned as a mental health speaker for 28 years – How to be present, How to be grateful, How to not get caught up in the second hand trauma, and most importantly, how to continue having fun day in and day out.
Jeff’s teacher and staff professional development presentations empowers educators to rediscover their calling and and renew their passion, conviction, and sense of mission – resulting in a motivation to refresh their unique teaching styles.
His talk will ignite a park of improved morale, school spirit, and culture – radiating outward from team members to students, parents, and the community at large.
