Rita Pierson, an onnie for 40 years, once heard a colleague say, “They do not pay me to love children.” She then said: “Children are not going to learn from you if they do not like you!” This video encourages onnies to believe in their learners and connect with them on a real, human and personal level.
Start right now by watching her TED talk. It’s really inspiring, especially now that we’re done with papers and feel like we want to give up when that child has done so poorly.
Hope you enjoy it. Watch the video here:
