imagine7a-11pq5vi

Imagine a classroom where there is no teaching                                                      only learning.

Imagine a classroom where there is no leader
only common purpose.

Imagine a classroom where there is no remembering                                             only experiencing

Imagine a classroom where there is no teacher                                                       only students.

Imagine a classroom where there is no objective                                                    only curiosity.

Imagine a classroom where there is no hesitation                                                  only hunger.

Imagine a classroom where there is no competiton                                               only pride of self.

Imagine a classroom where there is no textbook
only creation.

Imagine a classroom where there is are no walls                                                     only  horizon.

Imagine a classroom where there is no teaching                                                         only learning.

Imagine.  It’s easy if you try.
