Inspiring a Growth Mindset

Updated: Oct 25, 2019


Mindset vs. Growth Mindset!

Educators must find the right mindset. The world is changing, students are changing and educators must encompass a growth mindset. It’s hard for me to believe that teachers with a passion for what they do can even feel that students can’t learn or be motivated or succeed in reading and writing. I have heard these words from so many educators over the years and I’m still trying to process it!! It’s hard for me to believe that teachers with a passion for what they do can even feel this way about any student. Let’s face it…

We didn’t choose to become educators because

fame and fortune would be in our future.

We didn’t choose to become educators because it was an easy job…

(cue laughter here for those people that think our job is easy…)

We didn’t choose to become educators because of the

high powered status we would gain.

I have to say it…

All kids want to learn.

All kids want structure.

All kids want teachers who care—truly care!

Teachers need growth mindset to meet all children where they are at, so they can help them to make progress.

If the students are not progressing,

the teachers are not

AUTHENTICALLY

engaging them.
