Dave Burgess to Keynote Pine Tree ISD Back to School Convocation

Pine Tree ISD will welcome teachers back to class at the Back to School Convocation set for Wednesday, August 17 at 9:00 a.m. at Pine Tree Road Auditorium.  Dave Burgess, best-selling author of Teach Like a PIRATE and co-author of P is for Pirate: Inspirational ABC's for Educators will be the keynote speaker.

Burgess received national recognition as recipient of the 2014 BAMMY Award for Secondary School Teacher of the Year presented by the Academy of Education Arts and Sciences. As an award-winning  teacher from San Diego, California, he was recognized as Teacher of the Year, a Golden Apple recipient, and a faculty standout for 17 consecutive years in categories such as Most Entertaining, Most Energetic, and Most Dramatic. He specializes in teaching hard-to-reach, hard-to-motivate students with techniques that incorporate showmanship and creativity.   His dynamic and inspirational message coupled with his outrageously energetic performance style has transformed classrooms and sparked an educational revolution around the world.
