Getting to know Michael…

I started teaching when I was five years old. My father mounted a blackboard on the basement wall, and five minutes later I was teaching my two younger brothers the alphabet. Perhaps the only thing I was qualified to teach at that age. Since then I have studied the art of communication, which is not the same as talking. Communication is the accurate transfer of an idea. Speaking at length in a language foreign to the listener communicates nothing. A subtle gesture towards a member of the opposite sex communicates volumes… without speaking a word. I can help teachers improve their communication skills with students, as well as offering them practical, proven strategies they can take away and use effectively in their classrooms the very next day. Feel free to contact me today to find out more.
