Hal Bowman can see the future, AND he is determined to do all he can to change it for the better, one life at a time. He is certain that schools are the key to a better world down the road. “Every school can be a great school” is his mantra, and it shows in his actions. Most days, you are likely to find him with his shirtsleeves rolled up and doing at least one thing to make it so. He is constantly mulling over the possibilities; designing programs, road maps, and materials to help make it happen. Hal has dedicated his life to helping the nation’s best teachers and schools reach a new level of excellence. Each year, he captivates tens of thousands of students and teachers with his powerful message of hope and what can be. His attitude and demeanor may be unconventional and, at times, unexpected in the historically reserved world of education, but he is real; he is solid; and his deep and genuine compassion for students, teachers, and schools shines through.
All his efforts are making a difference. His Teach Like A Rock Star workshops for educators have been the buzz in the education world for the better part of the last decade, attracting sold out and enthusiastic crowds. Today, his latest program, Hal Bowman’s Be The One, is creating a firestorm of excitement for schools across the nation. These high-energy, 1-day events that take place on campus during a regular instructional day are providing schools with exactly what they have been searching for – profoundly effective tools, strategies, and resources for creating an extraordinary school-wide, learning environment. Don’t think for a moment these events for schools are typical. Far from it, they’re different in every way. As Hal spends the day meeting with administrators, teachers, and students, the school is filled with excitement, energy, and a vision for what can be. They are more like revival meetings that are designed to educate, entertain, and empower everybody in attendance to discover and take the first steps to realizing their true purpose.
According to Hal, “After spending 20 years in the classroom, teaching just about every subject you can imagine to kids in kindergarten through seniors in high school, I have spent the last decade on the road working, studying, and consulting with the very best educators and school leaders across the nation. I’ve compiled a truckload of the absolute best ideas, concepts, and strategies that truly affect school culture. And now, I’m a man on a mission to share everything that I’ve learned.”
As a result, Hal has helped countless students, teachers, and school leaders see the future for what it could be and create a blueprint to make it a reality.
Innovators and visionaries do that. They can’t help but see what’s ahead and shape it. In their minds, the work is never done.
Even with all of the accolades he has received for his Teach Like A Rock Star workshops for educators and the groundswell of excitement as he launches Hal Bowman’s Be The One for schools, he looks with great enthusiasm to the future. “I feel like,” says Hal, “I am just getting started.”
