“YOU ARE THE KEY”

Michael Bonner                  
Former teacher, South Greenville Elementary; fourth-grade teacher (fall 2019) Ron Clark Academy

“I wish I could go back to second grade, so Mr. Bonner could be my teacher,” were the words Ellen DeGeneres released on her social media accounts to her 50+ million followers. This is when she learned of how Bonner’s mind-capturing teaching methods encouraged students to go above and beyond on a reading test.

Bonner was previously a teacher at North Carolina’s South Greenville Elementary, where the majority of students have strenuous familial dynamics and some are homeless. The school is 100% FRL (free and reduced lunch) and is located in a marginalized neighborhood in eastern North Carolina. At the start of this school year, Bonner accepted a new position at the Ron Clark Academy in southeast Atlanta, GA, as a fourth-grade teacher, where he now teaches.

In early 2017, Bonner was honored by Ellen DeGeneres in recognition of his positive and innovative educational approaches for children coping with adverse childhood experiences (also known as ACEs). Ellen presented Bonner and his school with technical equipment to assist in the creation of music videos serving as aids to education. Additionally, Walmart presented the school with $25,000, and the Ellen Show created a Go Fund Me site for South Greenville, which has raised more than $88,000 for the Title I school. 

However, the amazing journey did not stop there! One month after he first appeared on her show, DeGeneres flew Bonner and his second-grade class to visit with her again at her studio. Twenty children from his class received an all-expense paid trip to Los Angeles, CA. The students recorded in a professional studio and had class on a Hollywood set. They created a professional music video with Ellen, Big Sean, Ice Cube, Migos, Ty Dolla Sign, and Lin Manuel Miranda! Bonner’s class was then awarded another $20,000 from Walmart to assist in creating a more prosperous learning environment.

His efforts to change the learning culture have also captured attention from other national news outlets. NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, Flocabulary, the Ashton Kutcher Foundation, and Remind all released stories on how Bonner is utilizing innovative strategies to help counter the negative stereotype within education. Since June 2017, he has conducted almost 100 keynotes and breakout sessions to educators across the world. 

With having spent just six years in K-12 education so far, Bonner is consistently seen as a visionary leader who strives to create a positive mindset among all of his students. He understands that they come to class each day with diverse backgrounds, strengths, needs, and challenges, and seeks to identify strategies to ensure the growth of their social, emotional, academic, and psychological needs. Because of his approach to education, students leave feeling a little more hopeful, challenged, inspired, and forever a part of Bonnerville!

Please note: Bonner will also be providing closing comments and he will be staying for a book signing at the conclusion of the day.

Picture trust as a fine piece of china or glassware. With just one slip of the hand, it can be shattered; forever in disrepair.

In this session, we will visit seven catalysts that can destroy trust and how to begin to work through them to put trust back together again. Destroyed trust is not always repairable … but it is never repairable if we don’t have a system to begin the restoration process. In this session, we will learn how to use the techniques in a restorative trust process. 

Participants will:

  • Be able to identify seven catalysts that damage or diminish trust.
  • Explore possible fears these seven catalysts can create in a culture.

Bonner will create a unique interactive discussion with educators in the room to discuss six categories that are circulating through education.

Through collaboration, teachers will:

  • Discuss how the complexity of implicit bias and cultural competency can ultimately influence our pedagogy.
