I am very excited to introduce you to Ron Clark. He is an award winning educator that now is the co-founder of the Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta. Ron Clark began his teaching career in New York City. As a new teacher Ron Clark knew he needed a system to help mangae his classroom. From that experience he developed the Essential 55. The Essential 55 is a seris of rules to help every child in the classroom and everyday life. I have been a fan of Ron Clark for years and feel this will really have a positive impact on our students.
Examples of the Essential 55
1. Always say thank you when you are given something.
2. If you win or do well at something, do not brag.
3. Do not save seats.
4. During discussion respect other students' comments, opinions, and ideas.
