TED Talk // Rita Pierson: Every kid needs a champion
Rita Pierson, a teacher for 40 years, once heard a colleague say, "They don't pay me to like the kids." Her response: "Kids don't learn from people they don’t like." A rousing call to educators to believe in their students and actually connect with them on a real, human, personal level. She's a badass.
