Well, I still continued to struggle throughout college, even with all the assistance that was available to me. I graduated with honors and felt like an imposter.
It wasn't until I stumbled upon an opportunity to teach Spanish at a Charter High School that I learned how to create without the stress and struggle. It wasn't my colleagues nor my administrators that revealed this discovery; it was my special needs students.
As I poured through their IEP's (Individualized Education Plan),
I discovered that altering the enviornment; adjusting periods of study according to a student's attention span; adding breaks between lessons; students were more engaged and learning was truly fun.
I had to find a way to apply this to my life.
I poured over books about artist, creativity, learning and continued studying my students and their responses to me altering the learning enviornment. I discovered that I am now the student and the teacher simultaneously. I implemented all of these practices in my every day life and discovered ways to accelerate my learning curve and have fun at the same time.
