"I have attended several educational conferences and Nuts and Bolts is indeed the best! I just completed my 12th year ... Looking forward to number 13!"
As a self-proclaimed 40-year-old man-child that gets to teach middle-school creature types....I got more tools and validation that I need to continue inspiring and doing what's best for those middle-school creature types. Go to Nuts and Bolts - put it on your IPDP! Nuts and Bolts is better than your inservice. Mental health, humor, validation, networking, cooperating, and fun are all tools that belong in our schools. Jack and his team of inspirational speakers provide a new attitude and spark!
