Ken Robinson’s Story
If you find gratitude and enjoyment from working on cars, it is OK. There is nothing wrong with you. Just like there was nothing wrong with Gillian Lynne, who just wanted to dance. Her teachers wanted to medicate her so she would pay attention in class. After her mother took her to dance school, she excelled and become one of the most successful choreographers in history. Ever heard of the Broadway plays Cats and Phantom of the Opera?
In this TED Talk video, Sir Ken Robinson tells this story with his British quirkiness and it is definitely worth watching. I usually show this video in my “Intro to Automotive Technology” class.
