Ron Clark is America's Educator, right? Certainly he is one of my inspirations. I love watching his lectures/talks/speeches and hearing his stories. I love his candidness and authenticity. But mostly, I love that his passion remains. In his first book, endorsed, of course, by Oprah, Ron Clark lays out 55 Essential Classroom rules. I know, that seems a bit daunting. But give this book a try - whether you are a first year teacher or starting your 17th and need a little reboot. It's a great place to find some inspiration.
