Henry Winkler, most notoriously known for his role on Happy Days as the Fonz, was the Key Note speaker on Friday, November 11, 2011. Mr. Winkler is an author and child advocate for children with learning challenges. He refuses to call these challenges disabilities. We don't refer to someone who can not paint as art disabled. We need to start looking at our students as individuals who need help or tools to over come the things that they find difficult. Mr. Winkler has dyslexia and graduated in the bottom 10% of his class. He said that many of his teachers asked him, "What is wrong with you?" He responded with, "I have been asking myself the same question!" Mr. Winkler gave a truly inspiring speech and shared excerpts from his latest novel, Ghost Buddy. He has truly become a voice for dyslexia and students with learning challenges. He has co-authored an entire series called, Hank Zipzer: The World's Greatest Underachiever. These are 18 novels in the series, and I can't wait to use them with my students!
