Adding TED Into Your Life

Let's face the facts sometime you hate your job; the lesson plans, the grading, co-workers, administration, parents, and even once in a while the kids... But then you have those days you remember why you fell in love with being a TEACHER! The best way I have found to deal with days like this other then having my own personal devotion with God is TED Talks for educators. TED Talks is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks.

In my 3rd year of teaching I found TED Talks and it has motivated me and taught me so many things as a teacher. Here is one of my favorite TED Talks given by Rita Pierson.

About This Video Clip:

Published on May 3, 2013

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. TEDTalks is a daily video podcast of the best talks and performances from the TED Conference, where the world's leading thinkers and doers give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes (or less). Look for talks on Technology, Entertainment and Design -- plus science, business, global issues, the arts and much more.
