We have decided to add a new section to the newsletter; Ted Talk of the week! Ted Talks have become  a learning tool for both students and teachers. Professionals take the time to present on a topic hoping to give the viewers advice.

This week, a Ted Talk was found called Success, Failure and the Drive to Keep Creating by Elizabeth Gilbert.

“Elizabeth Gilbert was once an “unpublished diner waitress,” devastated by rejection letters. And yet, in the wake of the success of ‘Eat, Pray, Love,’ she found herself identifying strongly with her former self. With beautiful insight, Gilbert reflects on why success can be as disorienting as failure and offers a simple — though hard — way to carry on, regardless of outcomes.”

Take a few minutes and watch the video, let us know what you think and if you’d like to see more of these!
