Harry Wong is the most sought after speaker in education today. He has been called "Mr. Practicality" for his common sense, user-friendly, no-cost approach to managing a classroom for high-level student success.

More than a half-million teachers worldwide have heard his message. Because he is fully booked for two years, he has agreed to and has invited his wife to join him in doing a monthly column for Teachers.Net so that more people can hear their message.

About Their Work... The Wongs have formed their own publishing company, of which Rosemary is the CEO. The Wongs are dedicated to bringing quality and dignity to the materials they produce for teachers and to leaving a legacy in education by making a difference in the lives of teachers and students.

The Wongs have written the best selling self-published book ever in education. Over 2 million copies of The First Days of School have been sold. They have also produced the video series The Effective Teacher, which won the Telly Award for being the best educational staff development video of the past twenty years. It also won the 1st place gold award in the International Film and Video Festival. When the book and video series are used together, they form the most effective staff development tool for developing effective teachers.

A Superintendent said that hearing Harry Wong should be a state certification requirement for all teachers. With a perfect setting in a performing arts center, an inservice presentation has been created that redefines what the discriminating educator has always wanted. A five-hour inservice workshop has been packaged into eight small parts so that a teacher who needs help can look at needed parts or a staff developer or administrator can use each part over a period of time. An accompanying binder contains the Facilitatorís Handbook with a 108 page transcript to help you find information quickly and 127 pages of blackline masters of all the graphics used in the production.

There is no need to wait to hear the most sought after speaker in education. This production, honored by the Telly Awards as the best education video series in the past twenty years, captures the warmth, humor, and enthusiasm of Harry Wong.
