Wright’s Law…

There are times  when I need inspiration or a pick me up — and thankfully, I’ve “favorited” a lot of links that have been passed on to me in the past and I can come back to them when necessary. And I don’t know why it is, perhaps just that it’s Monday, but I needed a little extra this morning to get me going. So I went through and went back to once again watch a short video that was made about Jeffrey Wright, a physics teacher at Louisville Male Traditional School in Louisville.

LIFE LESSONS Jeffrey Wright with his son, Adam, who has a developmental disorder, in a scene from “Wright’s Law.”

Admittedly, I’m not a physics guy — I’m not a math or science guy whatsoever — and as much as I find humor in a shirt like the one below, I do know that those who are involved in math or science are making a heck of a lot more money than I am.

I will say this, though. I think I’d LOVE to be in Mr. Wright’s physics class. And, for that matter, I would love to also hang with Conkle — what a talent in the making.

One of his comments that really resonated with me was this: “‘Schools have ’em for six hours a day then the kids go home and whatever atmosphere they have around for the other 18 affects them. And so, you know, schools can change a lot, but we also have to realize that they go home to a completely different environment…What I went home to when I was young was very different than what some of these kids go home to.'”

So very true…

Check out the video if you get the chance — because I really didn’t even get in to what it’s really about. Jeffrey Wright proves to be a pretty fascinating guy. Bravo…

Clicking here will take you to the NY Times article written by Tara Parker-Pope, entitled “Laws of Physics Can’t Trump the Bonds of Love” (what a tremendous headline, by the way — quite possibly one of my all time favorites, actually…)

Clicking on the still image below will take you directly to Conkle’s video — my apologies, I haven’t figured out how to embed video in to this blog yet…
