The Ron Clark Story . Summer 2016, A Time Where I Was At

The Ron Clark Story Summer 2016, a time where I was at my worst and in a hard place. I was in a terrible motorcycle accident that left me injured and feeling like I’d lost hope. This was the summer before I began my first semester in the blocks program. I was constantly debating on if I wanted to start the semester or if I should take a semester off to heal. It wasn’t until one evening my mom came home and was talking about this amazing seminar she went to that afternoon. Her first statement was on how inspirational the speaker was.

Clark set out to make sure that he didn’t leave he wanted to form a bond with his students. He set rules for the class but they quickly saw all of the rules as one giant joke. It wasn†™t until one day that Clark couldn’t take the fact that his students didn’t see him as a teacher figure and he just walked out of the class for the day.
