Motivational Monday: Are you an Iron Man or Woman?

My friend Scott Rigsby is going to be on the Wow2 show tomorrow. I went to high school with Scott (he is 1 year older) and is the first double amputee to complete an iron man in the world. (that is 2.4 miles, 12 mile bike ride, and a full marathon!) He has an inspirational story.

If you have someone in your life or work with students with any type of physical disability, he is an inspiration!

We're going to talk about how the teachers in his life got him through this tough time in his life.

How can you be an inspirational teacher? That is what we'll talk about.

This is his story on Fox Sports:

  1. Vicki – thanks for sharing such an inspirational story. I’m a faithful ironman watcher, as my mother competed in the Hawaii Ironman quite a few years ago. Too often we take our physical abilities (and inspirational teachers) for granted – I look forward to hearing more about Scott’s story and how his teachers helped him become the amazing athlete he is today. Thanks again for breaking into a great topic!

    (and congrats on the Edublogger Magazine mention 🙂 )

  2. @kolson29- He is an inspirational story, perhaps because I know him and know of the depths of agony that it took him to get to this point. I’m very happy for him. He really does deserve this. He’s had a rough road.

    And as for the edublogger magazine mention — I’m not sure that I know what that is. 😉 Would love a link at coolcatteacher [at] gmail [dot] com
