Perspective

I had a great conversation with a new teacher in my department today. Toward the end of our chat he said, “When a kid says ‘this is hard’ I feel bad that I didn’t explain it well enough, but maybe my reaction should be that they need more practice.” Growth mindset all around- teacher can learn and kids can learn (and mentor can learn!)
