Hey there teacher bestie! Thank you so much for teaming up with me to help first year teachers thrive inside and out of the classroom around the world. I know this is going to be an amazing event!
On this page you will find resources meant to make your life easier as a presenter. Here you will find ways to submit your resources, templates, due dates, examples, and more!
If you can’t find the answer to your question here, feel free to send me an email at email@example.com OR post it in the Private Facebook Group For Presenters!
As I always say:
“We are stronger together.”
So let’s start making an impact one teacher at a time!
About the Summit
Here’s an overview on how the Summit will work.
The summit will be March 23rd-25th with the pre-recorded 20-25 minute videos (with an optional 2 minute pitch at the end) running each day. Each day will have a different theme based on the presentations that were submitted.
Attendees will have access to a Facebook Group where they can keep each other accountable, watch the live videos, enter giveaways, and ask questions about what they are learning.
This is a great opportunity as a presenter to connect with the audience, go live, build those relationships, and answer any questions they may have. (Honestly this was my favorite part as a presenter in other summits in the past. Also going LIVE is not required but it is a lot of fun!)
2 weeks before the summit is when we will start promoting the free summit. I will provide you with email swipe copy, social media swipe copy, and graphics so you can promote the summit. (More to come later)
If you want my help promoting, I have provided a Calendly Link where you can schedule a collaboration with me. Some examples of what this could look like is me going LIVE with you on your Facebook, Instagram, or Youtube. I can help you by talking about the summit on your Podcast, Stories, or even a Reel. Just let me know what you need help with during this time, and I would love to help support you anyway that I can! Here’s my schedule, feel free to email me if you have any other ideas or you need help promoting the summit!
A week after the summit we will be promoting the VIP Pass where attendees will get lifetime access to the replays and bonus items that are submitted. This will provide so much value to the attendees so they can utilize our strategies for years to come in their teaching career.
