UPDATE 6/24/15: I just added three more videos to this list. You can find the entire list with the updates here.
I thought this might be a good time of year to summarize and emphasize some of the most valuable resources I have reviewed so far. Today, I am offering a list of my Favorite Inspirational Videos for Teachers:
#3: The Power of Words – This might also be a good video to show your students. Its poignant message will hopefully help any viewer to think more carefully about how much word choice can impact what is said and written.
#2: Schools Kill Creativity – One of the many videos on TED that are motivational, this talk, given by Sir Ken Robinson, highlights the need for more imagination in our schools.
#1: What Teachers Make – If you are a teacher in need of a pep talk, this video of a speech by Taylor Mali will get you going. This isn’t one to show your students; it might be one to e-mail to the next adult who criticizes your job.
Here are the links to my original posts on each of these: The Power of Words, Schools Kill Creativity, and What Teachers Make.

This is a great tip particularly to those fresh to the blogosphere.
Simple but very accurate info… Many thanks for sharing this one.
A must read post!
Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She
placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic
but I had to tell someone!
