Relationships

1961CoupleTogetherA funny thing happened at the Ron Clark Community Day last week. He said relationships were the key to everything from reaching “at-risk” learners, to partnering with parents for student success, to fundraising, and unleashing and boosting staff morale. Whodathunkit. Turns out, that’s what we’re doing listening to him – a new friend and I. She teaches Spanish at a local high school and had two tickets and so invited me. We had a great time and look forward to roping in a third friend to watch a movie with us some time before the school year begins again. Who said a tenured professor, a high school instructor, and an adjunct faculty member in and MFA program can’t have fun, together? If Ron Finley can be a Gangster Gardner, I can be a Gangster Edulutionary.
