Here’s What Teachers Are Saying About Steve Spangler’s Everyday STEM Workshop

You did more than just teach us about your “best day ever” principle – you made it happen for me and my staff. One of my teachers who attended the workshop was planning to request a transfer to another campus next year because she had lost her passion for teaching. She told me this morning that you helped her rediscover her “why” and that’s why she has decided to stay at our school. This brought me to tears because we get to keep an outstanding teacher, and I’m equally grateful for you helping all of my other teachers renew their passion for learning and teaching.

Betsy Fluellen – Mount Pleasant Independent School District

Beyond wow… how can I begin to thank you for inspiring teachers after what has been an incredibly challenging time for our staff. You gave us much-needed fire and passion, and you helped us re-imagine how we MUST connect and engage with our children. I’m blown away by passion and mission to empower teachers to go out and create “BEST DAY EVER” experiences for kids.

Steve is the most engaging and entertaining presenter. This was our third year having him train our prekindergarten teachers and we could not ask for a better way to kick off the school year. Not only are the experiences fun and full of learning, teachers are hands on from start to finish—just how we expect them to teach in their classrooms.

You did exactly what we wanted… you helped our teachers remember how valuable they are to our district and the community they serve. Your Everyday STEM workshop was a fabulous way for us to kick off a new school year. Thanks so much for coming to rural Tennessee.
