When you book Amanda Yuill for your conference or learning opportunity, you can expect:
Classroom culture over classroom management focus
A great presentation. Every time.
When one workshop organizer asks their audience who they would like them to book, Amanda’s name is submitted every time. The content is going to be up-to-date and based on current research and learning, the delivery will have a great combination of humorous storytelling and actionable items and everyone is going to leave feeling they have spent their time wisely. Amanda has presented to audiences large and small, in rural community centres to halls (and of course online) and engages the audience in great participation every time.
A message built on equal parts passion and research
Amanda Yuill had a full-time teaching position at a school, but she gave it up to return to full-time occasional teaching. She truly loves being able to support principals and teachers by filling in to lead a classroom during an absence. And after a more than 25-year teaching career, she’s highly sought after. But it’s not just experience and passion that makes Amanda Yuill an expert in occasional teaching, it’s the extensive research. Amanda’s presentations are backed by her Masters in Education with a focus on professional development for occasional teachers and she is constantly reading the latest research and keeping up-to-date on classroom culture trends.
