Unleash your inner pirate!

The open seas of our classrooms are littered with treachery, treasure, and monsters lurking beneath the depths. Yet, our students are still mostly bored. During this one-day conference, we’ll be teaching you landlubbers a thing or two about teaching and leading the pirate way. It’ll be a swashbuckling time full of engagement strategies, treasure tips, sea shanties, costumes, and more. Join our frightening crew as they traverse the open seas and plot a course for the mythical isles of student engagement which dares to be exciting and entertaining!

Teach Like a Pirate

Based on Dave Burgess’s popular “Teach Like a Pirate” book and seminars, we’ll offer inspiration, techniques, and tons of innovative ideas that will help you increase student engagement, boost your creativity, and transform your life as an educator!

Lead Like a Pirate

Based on Shelly Burgess’ and Beth Houf’s book, “Lead Like a Pirate,” we’ll show you how to seek out true treasure! You’ll learn how to create amazing schools, engaged students, and empowered educators who know they are making a difference.¬†
