    Schools and school districts nationwide spend millions recruiting and training new teachers, and nearly half of those teachers leave the profession within their first five years.

    Like it or not, you will be meeting your new students in just a few days, and it’s time to use that beginning-of-school energy to your advantage. What you do in the first few minutes of class can determine whether you will struggle or succeed the entire year. In this funny and inspirational keynote, you will learn:

    • The one mistake that even experienced teachers make, and what to do instead
