Rock the Crowd
How The Cool Teachers Inspire More Students, Earn More Respect, and Become Lifelong Mentors.
Is there anything better for students then being in the class of the cool teacher? When it comes to being a student and being forced to attend school there is nothing better. How do these popular teachers continue to be the sparkle in the eyes of so many children while there are others that can’t get them to pay attention. Rock The Crowd shares the methods of those teachers that are considered cool by students while maintaining the best relationships for valuable learning to take place. For the “cool teacher” the front of their classroom is their stage and every day, for hours they give the greatest performance their students have seen to date. The crowd rocker teaches with passion and convictions that inspire real student connections with that last a lifetime. This connection helps the student to focus on learning and understanding the importance of having a quality education. These teachers are popular year after year while other teachers are struggling to relate to students. In Rock the Crowd, I share all the things that cool teachers do that make them so successful in working with and producing successful and long lasting results.
Pierce Brunson’s education includes Lynch Elementary, Meadowlawn Middle, Gibbs Senior High School (and the Pinellas County Center for the Arts) in St. Petersburg, FL Temple University in Philadelphia and Wilmington University in Delaware. He has 13 years teaching in the public school system as a high school Social Studies teacher majoring in World History and Sociology. As a teacher, Pierce had a natural gift to rock the crowd and everyday he knew the power of taking the stage in front of students and their moldable minds. Being a natural leech for ideas that work, Pierce started to use the techniques of other campus crowd rockers to greatly improve his teaching techniques. In 2012 Pierce stepped away from the classroom to pursue the personal challenge of positively affecting 10,000+ students a year with Firefly Event Photography, his company that captures images that reflect the personality of high school students at their homecomings, proms, and graduations. The second part of his life involves developing content that helps high school students grow the best skills possible to follow their personal path to success. Anytime Pierce has the opportunity to speak to teachers or students he is only thinking of one thing before he starts…Rock the Crowd!
