CNN caught up with the Ron Clark Academy co-founder and teacher in 2012, when he spoke about the popularity of his educators program.

“For the past five years of the Ron Clark Academy, we’ve have had over 14,000 superintendents, principals and educators from all over the country come here to the Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta to watch us teach in our classrooms, learn about methods and then take our techniques back to their schools.”

Clark says he encourages teachers to build bonds with their students, “find out things they love and try to incorporate that into your classroom.”
