Dan works for CTA and is part of the bargaining team for MDEA (MDUSD union). He is a long-time educator in our District and has deep ties to MDUSD. Furthermore, he is a parent in our District and I know he sees the challenges of Distance Learning up close. I respect that he is so committed to the safety and protection of his members, but he also wants to get kids back in the classroom. "We are coming back"- direct from Dr. Clark when I asked him about returning students to campus. We dug in to the timelines and what has to happen for us to move forward- it is not an easy task. I know he is also absolutely committed to getting kids back in the classroom and doing it safely.
6. Father of Dan Reynolds (Imagine Dragons, Frontman): Ron Reynolds
Our guest, Ron Reynolds, is the father of nine children – including Dan Reynolds, Imagine Dragons frontman and co-founder. The many hit songs from Imagine Dragons include Believer, Thunder, Whatever it Takes, RadioActive, Demons, It’s Time, On Top of the World, & Natural. Their many awards and honors include a Grammy win, several Grammy nominations, three American Music Awards, and ten Billboard Music Awards. Ron’s other children, seven other boys and a girl, are all impressively accomplished individuals in their own right – including another Grammy winner. It was truly was a pleasure talking with Ron. In this episode Ron talks about his principles, his approach to parenting a large family, the importance of service, and how he’s supported his children’s choices – even where there’s been an element of risk involved. His children are fortunate to have Ron as their father, and Ron is fortunate to have married a brilliant woman who was an incredible mother for their nine kids.
