In this Ted Talks video, Sir Ken Robinson speaks about the loss of creativity in children as they grow older, and the role that the educational system has in its decline. A remarkably entertaining speaker, he mixes humor with his views on how society has, and continues to, systematically eliminate creativity in the classroom.

Musings on my learning process and beyond!
I fell into teaching over 22 years ago and haven't looked back. Although I had never planned on getting into this profession, I discovered that I loved it and have never felt that I was teaching. Opening the world of possibilities to my students, and giving them support to be able to reach out far to achieve their goals, is where my passion in teaching lies.
