Ron Clark Heads Session for Fredonia Staff

Educator and motivational speaker Ron Clark spent a day with teachers and staff from Fredonia Elementary School on July 27.

The session, which also included speaker Kim Bearden, was held in the upstairs meeting room at the Nacogdoches County Expo and Convention Center.

Clark, who is a New York Times best-selling author, spent time teaching students from low-wealth areas of North Carolina and New York City, which led him to be named Disney’s American Teacher of the Year.

Currently, Clark serves as a teacher and administrator at the Ron Clark Academy, an award-winning and internationally acclaimed middle school in Atlanta, Ga.

Bearden is the co-founder, executive director, and language arts teacher at the Ron Clark Academy.

More than 50,000 educators from around the world have visited Kim’s classroom and have attended her workshops to learn better ways to engage students, promote academic rigor, and create a climate and culture that promote success.

In 2016, Bearden was honored at the White House for being inducted into to the National Teachers Hall of Fame. She is the recipient of the Disney American Teacher Award for Humanities and the Milken Family Foundation Award for Excellence in Education.

“This was a wonderful opportunity for our staff to spend time with two outstanding and motivational educators,” said Fredonia Principal Melinda Wiebold. “It’s at the first of the school year, and this will help us build momentum heading into the first six weeks of classes.”
