We always talk about creativity in regards to the learners in our schools. But what about educators? Of course most educators are creative in many ways, but what about fostering and nurturing that creativity?
And what happens to educators that find their creativity is not thriving in their current environment? I recently discussed this with some friends and this is what they said:
- look for a new post/school
- move into a more creative job
- aim for change from within
- start your own school/place of learning
And the latter, yes, that has been on my mind for so many years. And even more so since I moved back from international schools to the state system.
Create your own…. that’s just such a wonderful thought. But where to start?
