I wish I had this training as a new teacher. Mike’s message is invaluable!
Mike is enthusiastic and extremely knowledgeable. He has real classroom experiences and “gets” teachers. His ideas are powerful and are able to be implemented immediately!
I have at least three goals set that I will start tomorrow! The time and energy to reflect is nice but particularly when structured. Colleague time is always a rejuvenator as well!
In two short days I have learned many new strategies to implement not only as a classroom environment but in my life as a mother as well.
Mike, you brought together a group of people who believe in SEL and managed to bring us closer to a collective understanding of the topic and the beginnings of a path toward action. You did NOT bring us a boiler plate.
Mike was really engaging to listen to. He used his own strategies to navigate through his talk. It is nice to go to a workshop that gives actual strategies and isn’t just a lecture about ideas!
This (workshop) was such a great reminder of how important it is to provide choice to all of our students. It was engaging and informative!
Wow! Great information. I’m so excited to go share and use what I learned. I left excited and wanting to try more choice with students and adults at my school.
Mike’s approach to teaching adults leads to an engaging and energizing atmosphere. It provides an effective model for teaching students!
Challenge through choice was an excellent experience! I gleaned many bits of wisdom to put to use in my classroom intentionally! The conversations about teacher language and praise were incredibly thought-provoking, not only within my classroom, but also with my personal children!
Thank you for reminding me/us what education should look and be like.
Mike’s practical approach made 6 hours fly by. He has a common sense attitude and truly cares about helping others become great.
Within three full days of work with Mike, my staff was energized and excited to incorporate choice into their classrooms.
Personally, Mike inspired me to vary the choices in my classroom. As a school, he has unified us as a team–all sharing our renewed passion for teaching.
I really enjoyed learning more about how to craft engaging and meaningful choices in my classroom. I’m excited to bring this learning back to my classroom and bring more joy into our learning experiences.
Mike is a wonderful presenter with a plethora of knowledge in helping our students have choice and ownership over their work. The workshop was so insightful and I look forward to the release of his book!
As a first year teacher I am so glad I got to experience this workshop with Mike. He gave us so many new resources and activities that I am eager to try out in my first classroom. Thank you!
Teachers never have enough time, but make time for this one! Over a period of two days, I was able to check off over half my “getting ready for the first day” checklist.
This workshop was a fantastic way to be reflective about my current practices and ways that I can make learning as purposeful, engaging, and relevant to ALL of my students. I left the workshop with significantly more tools in the box than I arrived with.
Mike Anderson’s presentation on effective discipline was insightful and made our teaching staff think carefully about language choice and child centered approaches to support social-emotional learning.
Mike Anderson came to our school and has provided us with workshop days, and as a new teacher I found his ideas and philosophies very motivating. I feel ready and excited to hit the ground running!
Mike makes choice seem so important and yet so easy to implement at the same time. His realistic approach and easy-going style helps him be very relatable to the whole staff.
Mike is fantastic at teaching you new ways of thinking about sharing the responsibility of learning with your students.
I have been in a few of Mike’s workshops, and I learn something new each time that are easy to implement in everyday life.
Mike, thank you for a very positive jump start to our Summer Summit Conference. Exceptional workshop!
