It is a school that makes kids want to learn. The innovative techniques used at the Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta has educators across the country wanting to do the same. Our T.J. Holmes took a tour of the school to see what makes it stand out from the rest.
We CNN folks travel...a lot. Being in Atlanta, we fly out of Hartsfield-Jackson International. And in our mad rush to the airport, we always seem to go through the checklist in our minds: Did I bring enough socks? Where is my driver's license? Is my cell phone fully charged? What is that smell in the back of the parking shuttle?
We notice the beautiful flowers, trees, and shrubs that surround the huge travel hub, but we often take their perfection for granted. We rarely ask the question: Who did all of this? It doesn't dawn on us that someone has to plant the bulbs, trim the hedges, and keep everything green. That someone is Abra Lee.
This weekend Reynolds Wolf will be on the job with Abra, to show the world what it takes to maintain and groom the 5-thousand acres of plant life at the world's busiest airport.
Good times! Join TJ, Betty and Reynolds in the CNN Newsroom Saturday starting at 6am ET/3am PT.
