Atlanta’s Ron Clark Academy is trying to do something different with education, and its founder, Ron Clark, for whom the school is named, is doing his best to make sure his student enjoy coming to school rather than dreading it.
“It’s hard to explain the Ron Clark Academy. It is a place that’s about passion, energy,” Clark said earlier this year of his plans for the school. “I wanted to create a school where you could feel the spirit, wanted kids to walk into this school and say, ‘I love coming here.’ If you’ve got individuals who are passionate about making a difference in the lives of kids, they’re going to be successful.”
But it’s not just Clark’s energy that makes him special. He is the New York Times best-selling author of The Essential 55 and was a Global Teacher Prize finalist. And he is also, apparently, an awesome dancer.
Clark posted a video of himself and his students doing the Nae Nae and other dances, and in less than 24 hours, it had already amassed over a million views.
We can see why: this is one teacher who has some slick dance moves. Check out the video of Ron Clark and his students dancing below!
