Are you feeling creative today? If so, why? If not, why not? In a way, creativity is linked to a lot of the factors that drive educators to do the great work they do: inspiration, ambition, energy, empathy, and commitment. Everyone is capable of creativity, but it's not necessarily a natural phenomenon that simply emerges and inspires - it takes effort.


So what keeps this going? Think about:

  • Where do you find creative inspiration in your daily life? How do you encourage your students?
  • How do you get creative within the context of things like new Common Core curriculum and materials? How do you fit in creative instruction and student activities in the context of what many educators to feel is too much testing?
