As a teacher on hiatus, I like most of you must complete a certain number of hours mandated by the state for continuing education. I try to find classes that pertain to elementary education students, but depending on the schedule with my own children I have often found myself in classes where speakers read directly from power point presentations (something I could easily do myself), or possibly going on and on for hours without ever lifting their head from the book.
Last night was an exception. You'll see in my right side bar a picture of Richard Gallagher. Please take the time to visit his website. Richard is a motivational speaker. He provides a number of programs that are designed for students, parents, and teachers.
If your child is struggling in school, his program How To Study could quite possibly be the answer. Richard offers a number of books, videos and CD's which help supplement his presentations.
Richard believes that that laughing is the key to learning. Wow, if only all teachers taught that way. Could school possibly be fun?
Don't be left in the cold. Go to Richard's website today and I'm sure you'll find something you like.
P.S.- I have been to 3 seminars given by Richard Gallagher. Each were packed with useful information. This is not a paid advertisement, although he did give me a free book after I told him I would mention his program in my blog (Thanks Mr. Gallagher!)
