Un jour, Rita Pierson, enseignante depuis 40 ans, entend une collègue dire, « Je ne suis pas payée pour aimer les élèves. » Sa réponse : « Les enfants n'apprennent rien des personnes qu'ils n'aiment pas. » Elle appelle avec passion les enseignants à avoir foi en leurs élèves et à établir de vraies relations humaines avec eux, à un niveau personnel.

Rita F. Pierson spent her entire life in or around the classroom, having followed both her parents and grandparents into a career as an educator. Full bio
