About the Actor:

Rita Pierson, as seen on Ted Talks Education of Houston, Texas, has been a professional educator since 1972. As an educator, she has served in numerous roles, including elementary regular and special education teacher, junior high school teacher, counselor, assistant principal, director, testing coordinator, and consultant. In addition, she is a Licensed Professional Counselor. Rita also developed and implemented a school/community involvement program for a large urban elementary school, as well as organized and trained an in-school crisis team for students in need of immediate intervention. An experienced consultant, Rita has presented numerous workshops for aha! Process, Inc. since 1997.


First in the Family is a great tool that Oklahoma GEAR UP uses with first-time college parents and families to show that college is worth the challenge of dealing with the unknown. Rita Pierson does a great job of discussing common situations that families often see as barriers for their student to attend college. Her conversational and engaging tone makes families feel as if they are having a chat with an old friend. The video provides great tips and tools that parents can use early to help their student prepare while still in high school, and later to succeed once they enroll in college. --Jolynn Horn, Assistant Vice Chancellor, Oklahoma GEAR UP
