Brian Mendler, certified teacher, international speaker, and author of "That One Kid" and "Watch Your Mouth", spoke to over a hundred Macon and Piatt county school administrators during the ROE 39's annual kick-off breakfast.  Brian shared his own struggles in school as a kid with severe undiagnosed ADHD and reading difficulties, as well as, his successes as a classroom teacher .  Brian challenged administrators to think about giving all kids HOPE (Hearing Other People's Experiences) by listening to kids, really listening.  Brian said, "Hope must come before responsibility of expectations."  Thanks to Brian Mendler for a powerful start to school!
