West Elementary School – Growth Mindset Training


Over 800 West Elementary School students gathered to learn about Growth Mindset and bring a voice to both fixed and growth mindset phrases. After the presentation, I was given a VIP tour from some of West Elementary’s leaders. I was able to see The Leader in Me in action in a first and fifth grade classroom. Finally, I ended my visit at my friend and fellow teacher of the year, Jackie Harris’s classroom. I was touched by how deeply these children understood and applied Growth Mindset. One student posted on their Growth Mindset tree, “When my classmates succeed, I’m inspired.” Wow!
