There Is a Song Within You Just Waiting to be Sung.
In most lives there is a moment when we need to rise through our pain, through self-doubt, fear, and mistrust, and reconnect with who we are meant to be. Fight Song recounts one acclaimed educator's journey through chaos into meaning-and shows readers how to reawaken connection with themselves and humanity.
Kim Bearden is an award-winning educator whose career has spanned three decades. She has been inducted into the National Teacher's Hall of Fame, selected as a Disney American Outstanding Teacher of the Year, and honored with the Milken Family Foundation's Award for Excellence in Education.
In Fight Song, Bearden recounts her personal journey from hopelessness to healing and how those steps soon coincided with her cofounding the renowned Ron Clark Academy. Over 15,000 educators visit the academy and Bearden's classroom each year to learn ways to engage students and create a climate and culture for success.
In this inspiring memoir, Bearden analyzes her own path and shows readers how they, too, can strip sorrow and passivity from their lives and thrive by rediscovering their significance and genuine life mission. The revealing and often humorous anecdotes illustrate a thoughtful process that invites readers to identify their true worth through unification with others and ultimately guides them to a sense of deep purpose-a fight song.
This is a revised edition, with bonus content.
