NEW!! Education Cheat Sheet: Passion-Based Learning
Released: November 21
Editor’s Note: In the third grade, my friends wanted to be firefighters, police officer, chefs and teachers. I wanted to be in advertising. I have the career day folder to prove it. I believe my love for splashy ads started when I was 4. My mom says I used to sit in front of the television and point at every commercial—it didn’t matter if it was promoting Tylenol or toys— and say, “I think I want that.” Later, I learned that my real passion was for communication and performance, leading to studies in journalism and theater, and a career in broadcast news and magazines. Today, following a child’s passions has become a key movement in education.  Asia Pacific International School’s Scott Paulin takes a closer look.
