I recently had the opportunity to speak to teachers and administrators in the Macon County School System. It was their county-wide professional development day right before school kicked off. If there is one profession that I truly admire – it’s teaching.
Thanks to Shawn Carter, Supervisor of Instruction for the Macon County School system for bringing me in.
During the Mayberry Method speech, I was able to weave in some personal stories about teachers who had profound effects – both good and bad – on my early years. Never underestimate the power of words, guidance and a well timed compliment. School is so much more than homework and tests. It is all about connections and commitment.
Best of luck to all the teachers everywhere who imprint upon our kids. You Rock!
