hello everyone, mr. clark....

 

today i attended a professional developement back to school meeting.....one of the presenters used a five minute clip downloaded it looked from youtube, of the ron clark story.... to make a long story short, the clip was of mr. clark asking a student in the hallway to admit they cut in line on the way to the cafeteria....then the presenter wanted to staff to comment on the method used to correct the student's behavior...the reaction she was expecting from the staff was the teacher was too hard on the child, made her feel embarressed bad...etc, in front of the class.......i raised my hand and said no, mr. clark is a well respected awarded teacher, and has his on academy, the essential 55 is wonderful and used by many teachers throughout the country....so i agree with the method...i got no response from her......i heard whispers in the crowd "...essential 55, i have heard of that..."     so i was motivated to write to this site tonight to  let you know, i am no expert, but i agree and  a supporter of mr. clark's vision and his staffs accomplishments....kudos to all!!!  wish i worked there instead of this misguided school..............thankyou........

AWESOME! I'm glad to hear that your response seems to have gotten people
talking. Ron wasn't being hard, he was teaching the girl to hone up to her
responsibilities as a citizen.

excatly.... our campus has alot of issues that have formed since new administration took over two years ago.....i have been at the campus over 7 years, and have seen it at its finest.....sadly, now at its lowest....i hope i can continue to touch lives and hopefully,the skills the children learn from me will make their marks has their educational lives continue up the grades.....

paraprofessionals dont do it for the pay, we do it for the love of the kids.....
