Ron Clark, Principal, math teacher, and founder of the Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta, Georgia is proving why he is an award winning educator.  Clark agreed to take part, along side his students, in the popular dance challenge to DLOW’s “Bet You Can’t Do It Like Me.”

The kids took a few hours off their winter break to come in to school and teach their teacher all the dance moves. The video speaks for itself, the Principal and students killed the challenge with their impressive moves.

Clark was interviewed by the Huffington Post where he stated, “School should be exciting to them.”  Clark continued, “You’ve got to know who your kids are and show them that you care about their culture.”

If you’re thinking Clark sounds familiar, you may remember last June he invited Erica Campbell and Angie Stone to surprise Ron Clark Academy graduates.  The former National Teacher of the Year was even featured on CBS This Morning for his unique teaching style.  You can read more on this story here, and watch the viral video below!
