“David is very knowledgeable and he imparts that knowledge in different and effective ways.” — Florida Superintendent
“I always feel on the defensive and must learn to separate it from my emotions. This course put me in control. It’s absolutely relevant. It will help administrators shape and mold their natural talent.” — Sabrina Everett, Superintendent, Thomasville City Schools
“It was extremely useful. People can benefit no matter what their experience level is. I especially liked the deeper dives — learning about the media’s Code of Ethics — and practicing messages and delay tactics. It will increase my confidence and I will be better prepared to help others in my district.” — Moses Everett, District Public Information Officer
MediaTalk For Educators is a two-course series: Enter the Arena and Master the Art. Each course takes about 4 hours to complete, but exact times depend on your experience level. The course is self-paced so you can take it whenever you want, in short increments or all at once.
