Some teachers are like pirates, sailing the seven seas in search of adventure and treasure. Their classrooms are places of intrigue and wonder, laughter and learning. Sound impossible? In his book, Teach Like a Pirate, Dave Burgess builds his case for being a teacher that is dedicated to increasing student engagement through whatever means necessary. He covers topics like increasing your passion and enthusiasm for teaching, learning to take risks, presentation skills, keeping the attention of your students, and several chapters of effective hooks to use when teaching. This book study will provide you with an opportunity to evaluate your own teaching style with fresh eyes and rekindle your passion and purpose for teaching. This course is available for 1 or 2 units.

Note: Required book must be acquired separately.

This course is applicable towards the Student Engagement Certificate.

I believe that teachers are the backbone of society, and that education plays a major role in shaping a culture’s values. I made a career change to education after four years of active duty in the army and two years working in aircraft. For the past 25-30 years, I have had the privilege of teaching in a variety of settings in public and private schools, charter schools, and over half of my career teaching overseas in international settings. My educational interests include integrated curriculum development, art instruction, classroom climate, teacher care, educational technology, and Biblical integration.
