Think about someone you consider successful and respected as an educator....
When I think about this, I always think about my amazing friend Tanya Griego, currently a first grade teacher (and the Godmother of our Noah!) .....She is always learning, reading, asking colleagues for advice, and always "growing her brain" in some way. She is my very own "growth mindset" model.
Carol Dweck, Standford University, has studied "growth mindset" vs. "fixed mindset" and the impact it has on learning and ultimately, our lives! Her book, Mindset, is being referenced by people in all industries and is one I can't stop thinking about.
View the video below to see how a teacher implements "growth mindset" in her 2nd grade math classroom! (Thanks Kim Anthony for finding and sharing this great video!)
