A note about passionate teaching from Richard . . .

   My passion for teaching spans almost four decades of service in secondary, post-secondary and community settings. Why the fire still burns was understanding from the start teaching is about building relationships, as well as rarely needing to write a discipline referral. Sadly, many teachers lose their passion due to chronic misbehavior by students and the demands of differentiating instruction. Now, combining my experience with powerful “Time To Teach,” I offer teachers and administrators a way to relight hope for on-track, inspired teaching. Practical, proven strategies I share in on-site school trainings renew classrooms into a culture of student self-efficacy. Teachers leave trainings feeling empowered; learned strategies for maximizing instruction time can be used effectively–and immediately!  “Time To Teach” raises self-esteem of those doing the hardest job today., proud of a profession shaping positively the lives of our youth.

   As a successful educator and national trainer, I promise to teach, motivate, and inspire educators in my on-site school trainings. Please contact me today to find out more.
