Being in the education field is a calling and not for the faint of heart!  You have to be all in, all day, every day!  But we sometimes get bogged down in the demands of achieving test scores, winning ball games, and the day-to-day challenges that students, teachers, counselors, administrators and parents face to just get along with each other.  The goal of any school should not be just academic success, but building relationships that go beyond the classroom and equal a lifetime of personal growth and cherished memories.  When educators and staff are truly engaged and love and respect their students, peers and the parents they serve, they can move mountains together and miracles occur.  It takes just one person to change a student’s life.   But what if we have a whole district of dedicated life changers where the culture and climate is one of enthusiasm, commitment and connection!  We can start a FIRE that can’t be burned out!  When we get back to what FUELS our FIRE and remember WHY we came into the education field in the first place and we INVENTORY our strengths, REFRAME our challenges, ENERGIZE our body, mind and spirit, DECLARE our mission for the year, UNDERSTAND how to connect with each other and PRESENT our best selves every day, then we will have a FIRED UP experience and fan the flame onto everyone in our path!  Now that’s FIRED UP for education!!

Attendees will learn:

  • How to get back on Purpose and Remember “WHY” you entered in the education field!
  • Life changing relationship building strategies to connect with all the students, teachers and parents you serve!  No matter what their background is!
  • Connection building decorating tips for your classes and hallways, First Day and Each Day of School - Ice Breakers and Daily Journal activities and Warm Up Activities that will FIRE UP even the toughest classes and schools!
  • Self-Care, Happiness and Health Tips that will keep your tank full so you have more to give and avoid burnout all year long!

You Will Learn the 7 FIRED UP Steps:

FUEL - What Fuels Your Tank?  Getting back to WHY you chose to answer the call within and be in the education field in the first place!  What you do matters!!

INVENTORY - Take a Positive Look at the AWESOMENESS in your life and in Students, Peers and Parents you serve!

REFRAME - Shift Your Perspective and change your attitude about every task and challenge you face.  From Hallway Duty to Standardized tests = IT’S ALL GOOD!

ENERGIZE – Create an Energy Plan that will keep your FIRE burning and your personal life full of fun and time for you!

DECLARE - What’s Your Mission?  What will you accomplish?  How will you do it?  Go for it!  This is going to be your best school year ever!!

UNDERSTAND – How to connect with the most difficult students, peers and parents.  Audio, Visual and Kinesthetic techniques that create connection, engagement and trust!

PRESENT – Being in the moment and looking like you want to be there! Dress like a pro because you are one!

Attendees will learn how to implement these seven strategies to being FIRED UP for each school day and make an action plan to implement into their daily lives.

 Warning!!! There will be laughing, sharing and interacting with everyone in the audience. 

Get ready to be FIRED UP!!!
