Ron Clark is an educator who employs a progressive style of teaching at his Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta. Clark, who was Disney’s American Teacher of the Year in 2000 and has been on Oprah, believes that creating a joyous educational environment will help kids learn best.
“Teachers should be happy,” he told Oprah last year. “When you’re in a good mood, studies have shown the students are going to be more likely to remember and believe what you say.”
To that end, Clark posted a video of himself and a handful of students throwing down a dance routine in school. It was viewed more than two million times in less than 48 hours.
They have some serious moves.
