Feedback from workshops:

I attended Peter’s workshop last spring and came away with so many things to implement in my classroom. Peter’s presentation was insightful and inspiring and just what I needed to make it through the end of the year. I look forward to learning more from him in the future!

This workshop is a fantastic opportunity for you as an educator to dive deeper into the why and how of interacting with your students! Peter Briggs is concise, articulate and passionate about reaching students at their level and inspiring them into their own best potential. He will inspire you in your teaching as well. Check it out, you won’t regret it!

Peter is a phenomenal educator with philosophies that will live on for the betterment of our students and teachers. His instruction provides a realistic and compassionate approach for those in low demographic schools (and everywhere), giving you tools and thought processes that you can use to shape a personal and reformative look at your teaching, and your relationship to your students. Highly recommend this workshop!
