I have been thinking about how to show my appreciation to the many people who have supported me since I started this blog. After a lot of thought I have hit upon an idea that I hope will make a big difference in the life of one lucky teacher. I am talking about something that could save a career!
At the end of next August my school is going to host Ben Slavic for a three day intensive workshop. There will be a maximum of twenty participants, which means that everyone will get A LOT of coaching from one of the true masters of TPRS. But it gets even better; if you have seen Ben before then you know that he is amazing, but you have probably not seen his newest approach which he tells me is so tight and well-built that it eliminates the uncertainty of PQA. Tina Hargaden reports that, after Ben´s three day intensive workshop, she finally feels like she is doing TPRS the way it is meant to be done. I am ready to bring my teaching up to a new level, and I want you to be there with me.
What I am offering to one lucky subscriber is a $250 gift certificate towards the $400 cost of the training. I am sure this is going to be of most interest to subscribers from Southern California, but if you want to come from further away then you are more than welcome. All you have to do is subscribe to my blog and then leave a comment on THIS blog post with your name and email address. I will not publish the comments so that you do not get spammed– the comment is just so I can get in touch with you. On May 27th I will place all of those names in a bowl and randomly choose one lucky winner. If you are already a subscriber then just leave a comment with your name and email address.
My school is located in Lake Elsinore, California; when I used to live in San Diego the commute was 73 minutes and traffic was never a concern. For those of you living in Orange County, I hear that we are roughly an hour away from Disneyland. The workshop will take place from Tuesday, August 30th to Thursday, September 1. You can find more information about the workshop by following this link. If you want to attend regardless of whether you win the gift certificate, please sign up quick because there are only 12 spaces available to out of district teachers.
