Rita Pierson & Making Connections

Work can be draining, yes. And we all know that this is especially true of teaching.

But this inspirational talk from Rita Pierson will have you up on your feet and ready to take on any challenge. A long-time educator, who worked in some of the most challenging classrooms in the USA, Pierson found a fool-proof way to get through to any student: by actually taking the time to form a relationship with them.

Sadly, she died only three months after recording this short, 7-minute TED talk.  How fortunate it is for us – and for others whom I’m sure you will want to share this video with – that her wisdom was captured in this way!
