Dr. Harry K. Wong is the most motivational, exciting, and dynamic speaker on classroom management and student achievement today. He is affectionately known as “The Rock Star of Education.” As one meeting planner said, “In my 30 years of being in public education, I have never seen or heard anyone have the impact that your presentation has had on our teachers and administrators.” Other meeting planners tell us that when Dr. Wong is on the program, attendance at meetings greatly increases.
He has been called “Mr. Practicality” for his common-sense, research-based, no-cost approach to managing a classroom for high-level student success. His techniques have been adapted by thousands of educators, and he is credited with renewing entire schools and rescuing countless frustrated teachers. He is the author of The First Days of School, the best-selling book ever in education.
Instructor magazine surveyed its readers and featured the 20 people most admired by educators. Harry Wong was on this list along with Oprah Winfrey, Hillary Clinton, Maya Angelou, and Howard Gardner. In 2009, he was presented the Horace Mann League’s Outstanding Public Educator Award at the American Association of School Administrators meeting.
During his more than 30 years in the classroom, Dr. Harry K. Wong developed innovative teaching methods which resulted in a consistent zero drop-out rate, no discipline problems, and a 95% homework turn-in factor. His students ended the school year with the ability to demonstrate mastery learning. This culminated in his students winning over 200 awards.
Because of his effectiveness as a teacher, Dr. Wong has been awarded the Outstanding Secondary Teacher Award, Science Teacher Achievement Recognition Award, Outstanding Biology Teacher Award, and the Valley Forge Teacher’s Medal.
Tom Larkin, owner Lecture Management, says, “In all my years of booking speakers, I have never seen anyone with the staying power of Harry Wong. For 30 years, he has been the preeminent speaker in education, speaking to over one million people internationally. His message is universal no matter what your occupation.”
