Yesterday, TED Blog posted news that Rita F. Pierson passed away. I saw her TED Talk about a month ago and I was blown away. Her passion and advocacy for building lasting relationships with children is inspiring and reminded me just how important my job as an educator is to the kids I work with. And she did all of that in about 15 minutes of speaking.
We are lucky that her message has been captured in her TED Talk, but her passing is a great loss.
