If you have an interest in Education at any level – I’m sure you will enjoy hearing Rita Pierson speak about why every kid needs a champion. I believe Rita is right, and every kid needs this – they need a champion; someone who believes in them; and someone to advocate for them. I had a teacher like Rita in the formative years of my formal education, and because I had a teacher like Rita, I became a teacher.
So, What Are Your Thoughts; Do All Kids Need This?
Does every kid need a champion?
Did you have a teacher who was your Champion?
What difference did, or would a teacher like Rita have made in your life?
