Either I will find a way, or I will make one.
Live your beliefs and you can turn the world around.
Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree.
The most beautiful thing in the world is, of course, the world itself.
Vitality shows in not only the ability to persist but the ability to start over.
Look at a football field. It looks like a big movie screen. This is theatre. Football combines the strategy of chess. It’s part ballet. It’s part battleground, part playground. We clarify, amplify and glorify the game with our footage, the narration and that music, and in the end create an inspirational piece of footage.
- Hey! Thats my Dad! That is a awesome story Clint, I love the pic at the end! I subbed ya and made a special playlist on my channel just for this video. Keep up the great work and keep on tappin! 🙂
- This is heart taking… ?
And I cried cause I realized that no one ever belived in me.
- This is my son and his exact behavior and my exact solution. Today he’s still playing drums and always will ?
- I saw this at school and everyone was drumming with their pencil
- My goal in life is to make this much of an impact on one of my future students.
- I’m a mommy of a “tapper” and (8 year old) drummer! I believe he has what people would diagnose as ADHD we’ve been blessed with teachers who allow him to stand when he works and other minor adaptations to the classic classroom environment. Thank you for this beautiful video and sharing your testimony! ? Andi
- I have found the drummers in my classes and have given away so many drum sticks since seeing this video! #gamechanger #drummingislife
- Clint came to my school today!! Totally awesome!!
- The Principal/Counselor didn’t know what they had! I hope you have forgiven them for their oversight. ? And I hope Mr. Jensen gets free tickets to all your concerts. Drum roll, please! Encore!!?
- Awesome story. Wish someone would have cared like that when I couldn’t stop fidgeting in school as a kid. I was constantly sent to the principal and separated from other kids. I still have issues thinking I’m a problem and not meant for anything but being a distraction.
- Now THIS is a blessed story for those students out there with similar personalities. I don’t want to use the word problems because as we saw, it wasn’t a problem. Just mis-direction. What a wonderful thing for that educator to do.
- Such an inspirational story and a beautiful film!
- I may have cried a little, watching this
- you came to my school and told us like 3 different stories and it was really cool Mr. Jenson was the best teacher in your whole school from what I have heard.
- Lol, I’m playing guitar, i feel so motivated now, cool story)
- Love this story!!
- This man is amazing as a matter in fact earlier today he came to my school And those drum skills are amazing
- and that IS the only task of a teacher; to take each student from where they are, by finding
their natural talents and helping them develop them, to where they can fulfill their potential.
All else – control, curriculum, discipline etc, must serve only that goal.
- That was awesome! Brought a tear to my eyes. Very inspiring!!
- This makes me happy every time I watch it. Well deserved success, my friend!
- Clint just recently came to my school. Buhl Middle school. Such an amazing and talented guy.

- There is always one teacher that you will never forget.

This is why I was determined to translate a wonderful book from English into Dutch, so teachers would look at children with different eyes (and are helped to do so). I’m a teacher myself for over 30 years now 🙂
The Dutch title says it all: putting faith in every child (children need trust), the English original title is: Mr. Bear wants to be loved. Solution Focused stories and classroom activities. Written by Paolo Terni
Please take a look, you’ll love it!
