Rita – TED Talks

Rita Pierson: Every Kid Needs A Champion
This is the kind of passion I would love to see in every teacher, every day.  Check out this TED Talk, where Rita Pierson reminds us that, “Teaching and learning should bring joy.” Learn about the importance she places on the relationship. I love when she tells us she has taught her students a saying. It goes like this:

“I am somebody. I was somebody when I came. I’ll be a better somebody when I leave. I am powerful and I am strong. I deserve the education I get here. I have things to do, people to impress and places to go.” ~Rita Pierson

Rita Pierson says it all when she quotes Dr. James Comer.

No significant learning can occur without a significant relationship.
