• Rita Pierson’s inspiring call: Every Child Needs a Champion

    Posted on April 17, 2015 by in News Updates

    Everyone who considers themselves to be an educator, whether that is early years, primary, post primary or third level should take a listen to this speech

    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.

    Highly recommended viewing.
