She wrote, “My dear friend and teacher @sirkenrobinson left us yesterday. This hurts because he was one of the rare angels walking upon this earth. A wonderful father, friend and to those he inspired, which I am gratefully one, this powerhouse of a man brought more joy, humor and wisdom transforming education to become a place of innovation, creativity and inspiration for our children and our future.”
She continued, “God bless you Sir Ken, I know you will be watching over us all, continuing to whisper in our ears guiding us along to stay the course and realize our dreams.” Goldie and Ken worked together on MindUp, the program founded by The Goldie Hawn Foundation.
