Chase Mielke, M.Ed: Speaking to Educators

Speaker Interviews

Why is teacher burnout skyrocketing despite an increase in professional development for educators?

In Chase Mielke’s experience as both teacher and trainer, he’s found most professional development efforts designed to support educators miss the mark. Why? Because, ironically, they’re bogged down in theories and untested applications. 

What’s actually needed, according to Chase, is more compassion, empathy, and tools that have been tested in the harsh conditions of real-world classrooms.

  • 00:16:55 // The critical differences between keynote speaking and professional development.
