Is it worth it? What goes on during the time he's there? Is it just him for 6-7 hours or are there other speakers? I'm just wondering if I should buy tickets to go see him.

Thanks!!

It was 2 hours, and I thought worth the $20. He showed some YouTube videos he had done and really it was just a feel good couple of hours. Lots of laughs.

It was totally worth it. I enjoyed listening to him speak. He was on point about a lot of teaching issues. I did the meet and greet. Gerry was so nice. I would go see him again in a heartbeat.

I went with a friend and it wasn't really what I was expecting, but it was enjoyable. I think it was only $20, and you can get 3 PD credit hours if you need them. I think our show was about 2.5 hours.

I was honestly kind of expecting a comedy show- in the same persona he does for the videos. He presented as his normal self, which was interesting to hear his "normal" voice. He explained some about the videos, and gave some advice about teaching and dealing with parents- which definitely had a funny slant to it.
