Did you know you can achieve accomplish and achieve anything  with effort, patience and the right mindset?

 

 According to Carol Dweck, our mindsets are malleable, and you can support the development of a growth mindset when working with students and parents alike. In her book, Mindset: The New Psychology of Success, Dweck defines two distinct mindsets and how they contribute to our success and failure. On one end of the spectrum is the FIXED mindset and the GROWTH mindset lies on the other end.
