Ramsey captures the essence of what it means to pursue excellence in our teaching practice since our students and our communities deserve our best. Although we're not all surgeons doing life-saving work every day, this analogy reminds us of the critical contributions that teachers can and do make daily. Thanks Ramsey!

Ramsey Musallam is that teacher we all wanted to have in school. In fact, after seeing Ramsey, Sir Ken Robinson, Angela Duckworth, Bill Gates, Rita Pierson, John Legend and others share their 'ideas worth spreading' at the first TED Talks Education, my then 10 year-old son said he wanted to be a student in Ramsey's classroom! High praise indeed! Ramsey embodies the enthusiasm, joy and yes - curiosity of a child in his own work as a classroom teacher. As I saw firsthand through his work hosting my nonprofit's show, the Infinite Thinking Machine, for four seasons - his passion is infectious, perhaps even 'ridonkulous' in its effectiveness to teach.
