Hello My Name Is...

I've been a special education teacher since 1985, and I consider myself to be a learner as well as a teacher.  I've learned that I want to teach my students to learn from a growth-mindset versus a fixed mindset.  A student with a fixed mindset may give up easily when the learning gets tough.  A student with a growth-mindset knows , "I haven't learned it yet!" If you would like to learn more,  Carol S. Dweck is the author of Mindset the New Psychology of Success.  There is also a video on youtube by Derek Sivers called "Why you need to fail!"  I recommend both!
Please feel free to contact me at school or through e-mail with any questions or concerns!
