Preparing American Students to Succeed in a GlobalEra of Change
Thanks for that generous introduction.
It's a pleasure to be in the company of teachers leaders in education and all of you who support education in many ways.
I'd first like to get something off my chest that's been bothering me for years. I want to apologize for my behavior in the classroom 40 years ago!
Of course, I shouldn't have to apologize too much, because in those days, teachers always won!
I thought seriously about becoming a history teacher myself when I entered college back in the mid-l970s.
And I hope to one day do some guest teaching in my life after UPS.
As mentioned in the introduction, my wife, Sherry, and I host an annual International Business Symposium at my alma mater, Delta State University, in Cleveland, Mississippi.
