Do you have a hyperactive child?
Are you a teacher or a parent?
This is the true story of Mikey:
He wasn’t born in a log cabin, but he was raised in one.
His peg-leg grandpa lost his grip while jumping a train to get to work for Henry Ford — his leg was severed.
Can you spot which child is hyper in the video clip?
Endless energy. Endless mischief.
They dance to a different drummer. And they entice others to join.
Mikey graduated from high school with a fourth-grade reading level.
Mikey is Michael Grinder, who went on to earn a Master’s Degree, become runner-up for Washington’s Teacher of the Year, and author of over 20 books.
