Educators nation and worldwide are challenged to remain motivated

Often people talk about the need to motivate students nationwide. I agree that this is one of the most important components to education success. Equally important is to assure the one who educates the students are motivated. Educators nation and worldwide are challenged to remain motivated in and out of class on a day to day basis. Darrell “Coach D” Andrews has presented highly motivational educator training programs and events to thousands of schools.

Creating A Culture of Motivation!

This motivational yet strategic program focuses on training schools, districts and organizations on the process of creating a school culture built up motivation and teamwork. Educators go though an on-going process of training (Typically Monthly) that focuses on analyzing school culture and ways to change paradigms and focus on developing synergy around high expectations.  This event can be conducted as a one-time training but it is most effective as an on-going training and consulting project.

Building Bridges-Breaking Barriers-Connecting Dreams To Education

Coach D coined the nationally acclaimed term “A student with a dream is a student with a future, however, a student with a dream is fueled by a caring adult who believes in their dreams.”  An in-depth analysis of hundreds of schools and research supports that students who have long-term goals and are able to connect academic relevance to their goals. Will excel academically more often that students who do not.  This high-energy event will provide educators with tools to help student make the academic-dream connection.

“One of the greatest disadvantages of directing a convention…is that it doesn’t allow much time for me to participate.  And for that I am always disappointed.  For I do not always get to enjoy some of the “hits” of our meeting. And from all that I have been told—You were a HIT Coach D.”

Nancy RiviereDirector of Conventions-National Association of Secondary School Principals.

“Thank you so much for the informative, uplifting workshop presented to Delaware educators at our annual training.  The response was overwhelmingly positive and the teachers left feeling renewed and ready to tackle the school year with newly learned strategies and an “I can do this” attitude. One veteran teacher wrote: I felt so much more excited about starting the school year than I felt yesterday.  Coach D helped me reconfirm my passion for educating my challenged youth.”
