In a time when social media seems to be amplifying disrespectful words and actions, a former local teacher and coach is trying to promote the message that we should "Act with Respect Always." Rich Johns taught elementary and middle school and coached tennis for 38 years. Now he travels to schools giving presentations about character traits, speaking with kindness, the value of each individual and talking about how we can challenge ourselves to be our best.In this podcast with Diane Donato, Johns talks about the presentations and some of the students he has worked with.
