Rita Pierson: Thank you for Inspiring Me


I heard today that Dr. Rita Pierson died in Texas. I watched her talk several times, and was inspired. I will be left with one thing that she said that will always stick with me:

Children will not learn from a teacher they don’t like.

That statement made me realize that students have to connect with teachers and teachers need to connect with students for learning to happen, especially in an urban setting where I am at.

Thank you Dr. Rita. Your wisdom snd inspiration will be missed.

I am including her talk below. Please check it out. You too will be inspired.
