While I was blog hopping yesterday I came across a by-line that said: “If you have a child's heart, you have his head." I LOVE that quote and I LOVE the man the quote belongs to! Flip Flippen. He came to our district several years ago..well, actually MORE than a few years ago. I think he influenced my teaching more than any other speaker we've had. He spoke with such passion and conviction not only of education, but more importantly, of our youth. If you EVER have the opportunity to hear him, DO.
I'd love to hear what speakers you've had and maybe a quote from them that you remember all these years later.
