Since the first week of school, I have incorporated growth mindset in my classroom. I have seen most of the students feel more comfortable when they mistakes and we can "fix" them. This takes place during the Math Meeting time where the students make number sentences and they are adding (or subtracting) to get to the number of the day.
What is my “why?” Many people have asked me- “why are you getting your masters?” Some think it is so I can teach older grades. I tell them that it could take me to other opportunities that might not happen without a masters (maybe a Technology Learning Coach or something else.) Really, I just love to learn! I love to collaborate with other teachers and see how they use things in their class. It has been wonderful to start this masters right before school starting, so I can start the school with all of these ideas that we have been reading and discussing about.
