The (he)art of Teaching

William W. Purkey

Many years ago while I was teaching I attended the first Maine Wellness conference. I met educator and motivational speaker William Purkey. He was an amazing speaker. I was very impressed. Recently, I thought about Mr. Purkey and googled him and found this old black and white video with him presenting. I just had to share it. Hopefully it will bring a smile (or a laugh) to your face.

Some of you may have heard the saying below. It was written by William Purkey.

“You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,

Love like you’ll never be hurt,

Sing like there’s nobody listening,

And live like it’s heaven on earth.”
