A Date & Event That You Don't Want To Miss...

Dr. Perry, the founder of both ConnCAP (The Connecticuit Collegiate Awareness Program) and Capital Preparatory Magnet School in Hartford, CN., is one of the nations most sought after speakers and educators.

  1. Sorry...For ALL THOSE crunchy in the face and with attitudes...Dr. PERRY TORE IT UP in the teacher's section and without our help he knew the "Hilltop" vs. "the Hood" Peoria mentality and mess that is hurting our children...

    Question of the day...How can a teacher have a 5 year old child for 6 hours a day every day, he has no learning disability and he/she STILL doesn't know how to write or read?

    Is it the "system" failure? or is it the "teacher" failure or inability to teach...We ALL know the answer and it is the latter...

    First the heart has got to be in it...secondly the methods must improve or change and third the opportunity must be maximized and a relationship built.

    Dr. Perry YOU are welcome to my house, church and community ANY DAY!

    I'll give more on this after the evening session...Remember 5:00 PM at Woodruff. Be there if you can.
