"Why  Teach? Touching Children's Lives"

What is the purpose of teaching? In this highly motivational and humorous presentation, Kathryn Dillard---a distinguished educator and storyteller---conveys the bottom-line message: our purpose as educators is to inspire students and to lead them to success. She relates--- and we laugh all along the way--- how she was able to have a dramatic effect on the lives of her low achieving middle school students and inspire them to succeed with algebra using Hands-On Equations. Recorded at the 25th Annual Meeting of the Benjamin Banneker Association in Philadelphia on April 27, 2012.
