About the author
“He listened, he cared and he understood!” These words were used by a former student to describe the impact Principal McIndoe had on her troubled young life during her teen years. They evolved into his personal mission statement over his thirty-four year career as a teacher and school administrator, dealing with thousands of students and parents. His book, Great Kids—the traits they share provides Mike the opportunity to speak, with passion and experience on the key question, why are some kids so successful?
