This morning, I had the honor of giving the commencement address at the Ridgedale Alternative Program (RAP) in St. Louis Park, Minnesota. RAP is one of the several alternative learning centers that Intermediate District 287 administers.
An Alternative Learning Center (ALC) is generally a place where students come after they have had difficulties with traditional educational settings. At an ALC, students get smaller classes, individualized programs, and lots of interaction with teachers and staff. Graduates have overcome incredible obstacles and challenges in reaching commencement.
If you’d like, you can listen to the speech:
Learning to Bounce (MP3 format, 7.5MB, 13 minutes)
P.S. A special thanks to Eric Michelsen and the RAP staff for the invitation.
