Episode 001: Renaldo Lawrence

 

Renaldo Lawrence

I met Renaldo on a September day near London at the school where he works. Having had only a few email exchanges, we connected through a work colleague of mine who had met him on a previous trip. I was there to learn more about Renaldo and see how he and the school was using technology. While we had never previously met, I was quickly swept up in his warmth and generosity, and his passion for the things he was doing.

There aren’t a lot of people like Renaldo in the world. A former NBA basketball player, the fourth highest leading scorer in the history of British basketball, including scoring 73 points in a single game. Now an educator, his charm and grace catches you off guard.

This is Renaldo’s backstory….
