Rita Pierson: Every kid needs a champion.
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.
"Mathematics is a way of thinking. It's a way of solving problems."
An excellent video by Prof. Dor Abrahamson, Professor of Mathematics, University of California, Bereley.
