The start of a new school year is always hectic, challenging, and exciting. Student speaker, Dalton Sherman, delivers a pep talk to Dallas ISD staff to kick off their 2008 academic year. Could this kid one day run for president of the free world?

    Thanks for the link, very cool kid.
    As a photography instructor, 8-12th, for 20+ years that’s the wonderful thing about teaching we’re able to inspire, encourage and connect with students just like Dalton.
    Now with Adobes education team posting here, perhaps we teachers can connect with the A team. Somehow. Some way.
