MEET OUR CLOSING SPEAKER!
Edward DeShazer, M.S., Educator, Speaker
Closing Presentation: “The Secret Sauce”
As a student, Edward DeShazer was suspended over 30+ times through school. Expelled from middle school, expelled from high school, and shot in college, Edward was one of the hard-to-reach students that many teachers struggle with today. He has been in education for 16 years. As Executive Director and a certified restorative practices trainer, Edward has helped transform Greater Holy Temple Christian Academy’s from a one-star school to a four-star school in six years. In 2021, Edward was nominated as a Notable Minority Executive in the state of Wisconsin by the BizTimes.
As a speaker, Edward aims to inspire educators to be intentional with the relationships they build with their students in order to build meaningful relationships and to connect with their harder to reach students.
