Teacher and Student!

As an educator, I am always seeking ways to improve myself - to find more ways to help each student succeed, to bring the latest teaching techniques in to our classrooms, and to better connect with parents. I actively participate in on-line and out of district seminars and group learning experiences. Through my personal learning network of teachers throughout the world, I am able to keep current in the field of education, including literacy and language arts. "Growth Mindset" is an important part of our school culture. Changing the way we think, the way we learn, knowing that failure is part of that process, and understanding that we all learn in different ways is an important step in our learning. When students say, "I can't!", I correct them to say "I can't... YET."
