Thank you Chris Tully
Chris Tully’s keynote on creating an engaged and motivated classroom represents the 45 most impactful minutes of my teaching career.
I was seated in the audience at the 2011 Apple Distinguished Educator institute and remember the overwhelming call to me as an educator to make school work for each kid, to get out of the way and follow their lead.
Sadly Chris left this world way too early yet this powerful speech remains. May it continue to inspire for many years to come.
