• Psychologist Carol Dweck says: "In a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work - brains and talent are just the starting point.  This view creates a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment."
     
    In our class we encourage this mindset.  We take responsibility for our own learning and mentor our classmates.  We arrive rested and prepared.  We listen carefully.  We ask questions.  We say "Not yet" instead of "Can't" and work hard knowing that with hard work we will succeed.  Most importantly, we know that each time we stumble we are actually moving closer to our goal!
