    Ron Clark will share his journey from teaching in a low-wealth rural area in North Carolina to the inner-city streets of Harlem in New York City. Along the way, Mr. Clark will share inspirational stories of how his students made outstanding growth in test scores, conducted projects that garnered worldwide attention, and were invited to the White House three separate years to be honor by the President. 

    Mr. Clark was the 2000 Disney American Teacher of the Year, and he has been featured on the Rosie O'Donnell Show and also the Oprah Winfrey Show where Oprah dubbed him her first "Phenomenal Man." Mr. Clark has written three books about his teaching practices, "The 55 Essentials - Life Lessons for Teachers, Parents, Students and the Rest of Us", “The Excellent Eleven” which outlines qualities and characteristics parents and teachers should have to instill success in their children and students, and "The End of Molasses Classes: Getting Kids Unstuck, 101 Extraordinary Solutions for Parents and Teachers." This book offers the Ron Clark Academy's 101 Innovative and Classroom-Tested Ways for Improving America's Schools and Leading our Children to Greatness.
