Ron Clark Meets Brad and Nancy!

Thursday, August 23rd, 2007

We had a chance to visit the Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta and it was a great experience. Not only did we get to meet Ron Clark, but we also had a chance to see one of the neatest schools in America.

If people say the sky is the limit, then wait till you meet Ron. WHe had a dream to have a school like no other in the world. And that is what he did. There is a slide inside the building, technology all over the place, flat screen TV’s in the bathroom, hidden classrooms behind bookshelves (much like Scooby Doo shows), and much more.

This middle school for grades 5-8 will be one where the students have a chance to travel around the world and have meaningful instruction. Be sure to check out the website and enjoy the pictures!

Kent County and First Day for Teachers

Thursday, August 23rd, 2007

I had a chance to visit Kent County as their keynote speaker on the first day of school. After speaking with the superintendent of the school district, he quickly told me his goals for having me. It was to remind teachers that “Successful Learning of All Students” is our goal. And that “Everyone Can Make a Difference in the Life of a Child.”

I would like to thank Mr. Pack and the other staff members I met for a great experience.
