Has a TED Talk ever influenced you? How?
Ted Talk constantly influences who I am every day. I was introduced to Ted Talk a few years ago and one of the first memorable presentations that changed how I approach challenges in my life and how I teach in the classroom is Benjamin Zander on music and passion. This talk was absolutely amazing and shows the importance of being passionate about what we do and how it carries over to others.
