From Dalton Sherman:

There's probably easier ways to make a living, but I want to tell you, on behalf of all of the students in Dallas, we need you. We need you now more than ever.

Extremely encouraging. He

Extremely encouraging. He sounds like our students of yesterday! How I hope that there are many more students his age and older who are not afraid to express the same sentiments. God bless them and God change the feelings/minds of those students who have not yet gotten to where these students are.

Amazing speech by an amazing kid

As the Big Brother to a 10 year-old sixth-grader, this video made my day. It's so easy, in our adult lives, to get caught up in the minute of the day, the political back and forth, the errands, the tasks at work, that we forget being young, heading back to school for a new year, and what a challenge it can be.

This little boy displays such grace and confidence that has been developed and nutured by a full community of parents, family, educators, and community members that it reminds me what a tremendous challenge it is to grow up, to learn things, to find ones way through this crazy, rapidly changing, and dynamic world.

Let's hope this young man continues to inspire others with his wonderful example of self-confidence and commitment to learning!

This is one of the best videos that I have ever seen for teachers at the first of the year.

W.O.W.

I have never seen something so ... so... I can't even find words for it! Beautiful! I'm in 7th grade and I WISH SO BAD I could have that kind of courage to speek up. I have so many words, and a VERY loud voice, but little courage. The speech really opens my eyes and as of now, running for class president, I wish I could at least do something half as good. If you are ever have time to email me, please do Dalton! I am inspired by you! My brother is 10 and it is cool to relate. Please email! My email is: dragonlover1168@gmail.com. Thank you so much! CS

This is an amazing and powerful video! I believe in Dalton Sherman and I believe in all of our students' potential to achieve. I believe that we can all make a difference, if we believe in ourselves, and if we believe in our future leaders of America. I believe!

Wow

Wow

There's probably easier ways

I am currently a paraprofessional working on my Masters in Multi-cultural Special Education here in Ohio. During one of my classes, our teacher showed us this amazing video as a motivator for me and my fellow (just starting out) classmates. Not a dry eye in the room!
