Creativity and School
Creativity has been on my mind alot lately. I have also been reading about it, talking about it, and trying to intentionally live creatively. I keep reading and hearing how schools take the creativity out of us at a very young age. Is this true? As a retired teacher it can be, but it does not have to be. If creativty is important to you as a family, let the school know. Have your child placed in a classroom with the most creative teacher not the least. My teaching style was very different than many of the others that I worked with. Parents who appreciated what I did requested me. Parents who wanted a different type of teacher, did not. Let the teacher know how important creativity is to you. Help with projects if you can. I think the most important person in your child's life is you. If you value the creativity within yourself and your child, this passion and love for all things will shine through and make the world a better place not just for you but for everyone. Is it easy to go against the tide? Definitely not. But it is so worth the struggle to be able to live and learn in a creative world. I would love to hear how you feel about this.
