Every kid needs a champian

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.

On the occassion of Teachers Day what best than to share an inspiring call by a dedicated teacher.

Through this I also would like to introduce Teachers and Parents to this wonderful platform called TED Talks on youtube which gives inspirational and thought provoking lecutres on several topics of relevance.
