“I was made for the library, not the classroom. The classroom was a jail of other people’s interests. The library is open, unending, free.”
Reflecting on your past and present, what learning spaces beyond the classroom have been significant as you’ve become who you are? What relationships and places inspired your curiosity and creativity?
Can you recall what specifically made those places and people potentiating for you?
Ask two others about non-school spaces where they learned a lot and people who supported (or support!) their learning. Do their answers surprise you? Are they similar to yours?
