Uniquely Qualified Instructor

Ernie Chapin is especially qualified to present this seminar. He has over 30 years of teaching experience, most of those years working with difficult, unmotivated students that no one else wanted in their classrooms. His success with these students stands as a testimony not only to his skills as an educator, but also his compassion and concern for all students, especially those that society has traditionally cast aside.

Ernie has shared his insights, ideas and message with educators throughout the United States. His audiences consistently praise his common-sense, practical approach in dealing with unmotivated, difficult students. Ernie’s down-to-earth style, humor and real-life stories make his ideas clear and accessible to the audience.

Ernie is the author of, MOTIVATING THE UNMOTIVATED: Practical Strategies for Teaching and Reaching Unmotivated Students (Grades 6-12), the resource handbook each participant will receive at the seminar. You are invited to join Ernie for this thought-provoking, practical seminar. You’ll leave with proven methods for motivating your unmotivated students.
