Some 4-year college
Education, teaching and learning
- to find a mentor or coach (please contact me!)
- to connect with other self-directed learners in my area
- Traveling is my main goal right now, immersing myself in new and unfamiliar cultures. Also, finding out reasonable ways to support yourself as a self-directed learner after leaving college.
I'm here because of my consistant dissatisfaction with higher education. I spent the majority of my K-12 education in a Montessori school before attending a large, public high school. The educational values instilled in me during my time in Montessori have become a catalyst for shaping who I am, and my educational path. I firmly believe that education should be personalized, not standardized, and that educational flourishing is not a mechanical practice and creativity and imagination are vital for education transformation.
I completed two years at Ohio State and will not be returning in the fall. A new "plan" is hatched about every week or so on what I will be pursing in lieu of college. I hope that ZTC can offer me some guidance from anyone that has encountered similar difficulties and like minded individuals that share my ideas on education. Contact me with how you are shaping the world and simultaneously educating yourself! Aside from education, my interests include the arts (visual and performing), traveling (I lived in Peru for part of last year) and writing and literature.
