Inspiration: Stephen Ritz’s A Teacher Growing Green in the South Bronx


This morning was spent grading my online students’ TED analysis presentations. I always love this part of the month because my students refer me to yet another must-watch TED Talk. Since many students love and analyze Stephen Ritz’s “A teacher growing green in the South Bronx,” I decided to finally watch the Talk:


Ritz is definitely a “whirlwind,” as TED’s biography describes. His speech is fast-paced. He is dynamic, energetic, and truly “the oldest sixth grader you’ll ever meet.”  Ritz is more than just a delivery whirlwind; he is trying to use his energy to change his community. This TED Talk is inspiring. Take 13 minutes to watch it!

What great TED Talks have you watched lately?
