Work of an educator is full of challenges and it carries many opportunities for creative activity. We can see different ideas and choices for new, different solutions on a daily basis in the boarding school itself. This article presents various shapes and methods of work, for which I think go hand in hand with creativity, especially with direct interaction with pupils. Life situations in boarding schools present opportunities for educators and pupils to co-create surroundings that are democratic and creative on one hand, or rigid, inflexible on the other.

The author will try to clarify this dilemma on a basis of creative activity, which is eager to overcome the everyday routine of an educator’s occupation.
