I love to watch this a few times a year and I always send it out to teachers towards the end of the year as a way to reinvigorate them.
This is a powerful talk about what our perspective should be in education. Currently education has been under assault by the media, corporations, government, and many other entities and that often drains teachers of their emotional spirits. This is just the talk to refill that emotional self and get you through these dark times.
There are cynics among us educators, why they chose education is beyond me but nevertheless they are here. Watch this video and see what you should be doing and how you should be looking at your “difficult” students. Hopefully you will gain the perspective that I wish you would have had when you came into the profession, if you don’t it may be time to reevaluate you choice of career.
