TED Talk of the Week: Every Kid Needs a Champion

Presented by Rita Pierson. Watch the TED Talk HERE.



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.


This video shows the power of connection and relationships that can be built through tutoring.
