Happy Birthday to YOU!
Dec. 21 - Linda Legg
Dec. 27 - Kameka Banks
Dec. 30 - Candy Reynolds
Dec. 31 - Rhonda Carroll
Here's a link to the article, if you are interested.
And here are my take-aways.
- She reminds those who implement growth mindset to not only praise effort, but to also praise strategy and results.
- She also warns not to continue to praise effort when there is continuously no growth or progress because it will begin to make the praise received hollow and convey low expectations.
- Dweck also brings to light the inconsistency some have when trying to use growth mindset. If a parent/teacher/etc continues to respond to setbacks or failures as if they are damaging and harmful to the student, then they are moving back toward a fixed mindset.

Sending some love to a Wylie ISD kiddo
If you could fit it in your day, please have your students create a Christmas/holiday/get well card for Jeremiah. We will have a box in the office for all of them, and then we will deliver them to Jeremiah's house.
NOTE: Please review your cards before bringing them down for appropriateness!! We will not be able to sufficiently go through 600 cards. ;)
