Atlanta educator takes the Internet by storm with impressive dance moves
Award-winning educator Ron Clark is known for his energetic and innovative teaching style. Clark often incorporates music and dance into his lessons to help his students learn. Recently, Clark posted a video on Facebook of himself and a few students dancing that has now gone viral.
The clip features Clark and seven students dancing to the popular "Bet You Can't Do It Like Me Challenge". Although Clark towers above his students in the video, his energy and attitude matches that of the middle schoolers.
In 2007, Clark transformed a 50,000 square foot warehouse in South Atlanta into the Ron Clark Academy where students grades five through eight are educated. "It's hard to explain the Ron Clark Academy. It is a place that's about passion, energy," Clark told CBS earlier this year. "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."
