Mindsets

If you are human, your mindset changes daily if not hourly and it determines how you respond, react and think about things. In our work setting, this not only affects us, but our students!


I came across 7 mindsets.com and started looking into it. There is a book and possibilities of professional development, but what struck me the most is that this site supports that ALL LEARNING is social and emotional (SEL). I just received a book in the mail at school from ASCD on this exact same thing! Research was done to back this up and links between SEL skills and positive outcomes in academic achievement, behaviors, happiness, and staff employment and mental health have been confirmed.


This site also allows you to sign up for daily mindset quotes - which is what I did!!!! I LOVE RECEIVING THESE QUOTES! They remind me to stay positive and help me start each day on the right path. I highly suggest doing this yourself. As you have seen, I have shared a few of them with you and shared the connection between our Wildcat family and the quote. I will continue to do this! It is so important to remember and remind ourselves of our "WHY!"


The quote I wish to share today is:


"DO YOUR LITTLE BIT OF GOOD WHERE YOU ARE; IT'S THOSE LITTLE BITS OF GOOD PUT

TOGETHER THAT OVERWHELM THE WORLD."

- Desmond Tutu-


Each and everyone of you provide pieces to our puzzle at North Side! I get the pleasure of witnessing them every day, such as: relationship building with colleagues and students, time dedicated beyond the school day, student academic support, SEL opportunities within the school day, laughter and so much more! I am proud to be a Wildcat! You are Wildcat Strong!!!! THANK YOU!!!!!
