35/365: Teaching Is a Creative Act

Today I made:

these lesson plans...

I seriously have the best summer job! Being a tutor allows me to design creative, individualized curriculum for my students. Ideas that benefit others are being born here and it all feels like play to me! The greatest thing is, I know I'm helping to build life-long learners and creators. The lovely young lady who is learning with me this summer is quite the artist and writer herself, so it's been especially fun planning for our lessons.

I've really been able to step back and see the big picture with teaching lately. Lesson planning can be such a creative endeavor. When I begin to consider something as a creative act, it becomes infused with more meaning and joy for me. Teachers live the creative life.
