Our approach to classes:

Giving students agency through freedom of creating their own worlds and making their own decisions in terms of what stories they tell and how they represent themselves and others can be one of the most powerful tools of teaching and relationship-building. Giving them that kind of control, while attentively helping when necessary, is one of the most important building blocks of mutual trust, which in turn, leads to creating fruitful and beneficial learning environments.
