2022 Keynote Speakers

Gerry Brooks

Gerry Brooks will be our keynote speaker for both the Elementary and Secondary Technology Conferences. Gerry has been an educator for 25 years, beginning as a third-grade teacher in Palm Bay, Florida. He earned his master’s degree in administration and has been an elementary principal for 12 years. Originally using humorous videos to encourage his staff, Gerry has become a national encourager for teachers through social media and speaking events. He is a voice for teachers, but his passion is leading others to be responsible for their own personal climate and culture in the workplace. His book, “Go See the Principal,” outlines strategies for taking on this responsibility. Gerry and his wife, Kelly, have three adult children and live in Lexington, KY.
