So last night, we traveled to the big time ATL and let me tell you...in the words of Ron Clark..."The party was hoppin'!" They rolled out the red carpet...literally!!!! We were greeted/interviewed/photographed with some of the RCA students and oh.my.word. they are beyond PRECIOUS! I even remembered several of them from my visit to RCA last September. Ron was at his best and of course got us completely FIRED UP for the school year. The RCA students performed and then we celebrated the night away! I must say...this was the perfect beginning for a new school year and I am pretty sure that I am already 3/4 of the way through his new book! Go ahead and plan a little trip to Barnes&Noble and pick up this must read for all educators!!! Trust me...you will finish it in a day...TOPS! It consists of the most inspiring, yet to the point solutions and stories not only for educators but also for parents. There is a BIG chance that many of his solutions for parents will be included and HIGHLIGHTED :0) in my Welcome Back Packet! Seriously, this is a book you will not want to miss out on!
Here are a few pictures from the party: (Another little story...my camera had a full battery and completely DIED when we arrived. Thank GOODNESS for my phone. Still, the pictures are not that great! Needless to say...a new camera is on the way!)
My Teacher Crush...Ron Clark! :)
Well, I actually have two teacher crushes. ; )
Me, Ron Clark, My Amazing Husband (who also happens to be a teacher)
The amazingly talented Kim Bearden
Since I am already in LOVE with this book, I created a little list of my "Top Ten Favorites" from The End of Molasses Classes! Be Inspired! :)
