REALM Creative Academy
I've just spent the last three days in serious play mode and I couldn't be happier. My brilliant teaching partners from my old life back in Santa Monica invited me to help out at their first week of summer camp at the R.E.A.L.M. Creative Academy. The theme for the week was "Imaginarium." We painted and crafted and constructed and read and laughed and swam in the sea and asked "What if?"
I am so uplifted by this magical learning environment, and by the community of grown-up children at heart and creative, curious and empowered kids who share their joyful spirits there. As a teacher, I am beyond inspired by the idea of Redesigning Education and Living Meaningfully.
What if we did?
