One Response to “Course Resources”

  1. Love Ron Clark – I watch the movie every time it is on TV. I found a list of his essential 55 online and read them. He and I would get along just fine. I do have one question for him, though. Why did he make a rule about Doritos? I hate Doritos and just wondered if he is allergic or if he had some other reason. Thanks for sharing his site.
