Engagement in Education, Joy In Learning


My TWS experience made me more imaginative, more optimistic, not as negative as others.  I see how something might be good, such as a classroom assignment. In architecture, peers rely on other media and images to get their ideas.  I can use my imagination more–I don’t need something else to look at. I can just start drawing. I think I had more respect for the teachers in high school and college because of my Waldorf education.
