What Teachers Are Saying About Bryce
“Bryce Hedstrom is an educator, writer, thinker, innovator, and “Teacher Whisperer.” I cannot think of anyone else who has contributed more to the language learning community! In addition to his passion for teaching and language acquisition, he is a superb presenter. Bryce made me feel valued, and that feeling is priceless. He is a great leader; an innovative soul, but most of all he is a man of character.”
“I had the privilege of seeing Bryce teach my students in my classroom. It was wonderful to see the ease, fluidity and integration of all the elements he uses to make classrooms successful. He really knows what he’s doing. His lessons and stories have been tested and proven over the years in his own classroom. I trust his work. It works for me and, most importantly, it works for my students.”
“I have had the pleasure of attending several of Bryce Hedstrom’s presentations. Whenever I hear him speak I get something new to help me in the classroom. Bryce is a master at delivering helpful, reality-based strategies that can be applied immediately. His insight into community building, personalization and classroom management make his presentations a must for every World Language teacher!”
TPRS, CI, TCI, CCLT, and ABT Teaching Methods
Bryce started developing materials, presenting and blogging because:
“It disheartens me to see so many teachers try and then give up because they cannot make all the pieces of their teaching work right away. I also dislike the way that the inertia in education is crushing the dreams of so many gifted teachers and making students think that they are bad at learning.
It doesn’t have to be this way. I want to contribute to solving these problems of discouragement and abandonment of our profession by giving teachers some hope. I believe that success in the classroom is possible; that students can learn and that teachers can be both productive and happy. Comprehensible Input-based methods, solid classroom management, varied reading approaches and fresh student engagement techniques can help us to get there.”
