Mindset is everything

As educators, being innovative in our planning, implementation and reflection must simply become “part of the job,” no matter what our role is in working for kids. Leveraging student voice daily, meeting students, staff and families “where they are,” and using high- and low-tech strategies in teaching, learning and leadership are places where having two screens up at all times is vital. Let us keep the focus on maximizing each day and working to become more effective and efficient tomorrow. This should be our goal whether we’re facilitating teacher-led professional development, engaging families and community, communicating across stakeholders, or the hundred other things we’re responsible for orchestrating on a daily basis.
