Bob’s passion for teaching and sharing his expertise with fellow colleagues is evidenced by his enthusiastic, multifaceted delivery techniques. As one of Bob’s attendees quote, “It is unbelievable that Bob has taught in the trenches for over 34 years and is still on fire! His content knowledge and passion for sharing with educators is amazing.”
Bob’s goal for each and every presentation is for his participants to be totally engaged in the presentation through a hands on approach (movement) and to take away practical knowledge and activities they will be able to use the next day in their teaching assignment. He approaches each presentation as if it will be the only opportunity of the year for his attendees so it will be action packed, and of the highest quality. This quote by Bill Ayers best sums up Bob’s approach to teaching, “Teaching is not what we do, it’s who we are”.
"Bob's enthusiasm is contagious, his knowledge is extensive and his ideas are inspiring! Don't miss the opportunity to attend his workshop. You will leave his action- packed workshops with a pile of new ideas to use immediately with your students. "

"I have been teaching for 16 years. This seminar got me so excited; I left the meeting site and went back to school to make plans for my program. Absolutely the best Physical Education seminar I have ever attended! "

"Over the past 15 years, I have been in the position to find and hire literally hundreds of
presenters for various workshops, in-services and conventions. In that time, Bob FitzPatrick has
become one of my favorite presenters. His sessions are always informative, fresh,
entertaining and practical. He offers that special touch to his presentations that makes
the difference between good and GREAT. Donâ??t miss an opportunity to attend a workshop with Bob! "
