Ricky also helps educators reconnect with their WHY by sharing a keynote titled "Reach Them Before You Teach Them". This keynote focuses on the importance of building relationships, teacher burnout prevention, and Social & Emotional Learning. 

Preventing Teacher burnout

Teachers don't burnout because of what they do. They burn out because school politics and standardized testing make teachers forget why they became an educator in the first place. Ricky Ramirez is an experienced coaching professional who helps teachers reconnect with their WHY and provides them with innovative ways to strengthen classroom management. By providing educators with the right professional development, Ricky has helped teachers unleash their potential, paving the way towards both personal and professional success. Bring Ricky in to help rejuvenate your staff and improve your school's culture.
