By: Ashlyn VanDine

New principal

Dear teachers I am the new principal and I am going to do things a little different, you are gong to collaborate with your colleagues rather than fly solo. You are going to truly believe that all students can learn and succeed and your going to show it. This new way of learning is called Keeping a growth mind set and it is proving successful.

Growth and Fixed mindset

In a fixed mindset, people believe their basic traits and qualities, like their intelligence or talent, are simply fixed. They spend their time documenting their intelligence or talent instead of developing them. They also believe that talent alone creates success—without effort.

In a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities and traits can be developed through dedication and hard work and belief —brains and talent are just the starting point!
