A great reminder on the power of relationships in a TED talk from Rita Pierson.
You know, kids don’t learn from people they don’t like
The final words she delivers are extremely powerful. It summaries the power and the essence of the relationship at the heart of teaching and learning.
How powerful would our world be if we had kids who were not afraid to take risks, who were not afraid to think, and who had a champion. Every child deserves a champion. An adult who will never give up on them who understands the power of connection and insists they become the best that they can possibly be.
