Welcome!

08/12/19

Welcome to the 19/20 school year! I'm thrilled that we are going to work together. Do you like to work with others?Good, I thought so. Research shows that we grow our brains when we discuss and explain our reasoning with others, so look forward to a year with lots of collaboration. Plus, working with others is usually more fun. 

 

Do you make mistakes? Me  too! That's part of being human. More importantly, mistakes are our friend because they show that we are creating new pathways in our brain. Just like with athletics (and anything else we learn), it takes practice and hard work to improve. If we don't make any mistakes along the way, it may mean that we need to move on to more challenging material or that we aren't trying hard enough. 

 

I can't wait for a year of collaboration, brain-growing,  mistake-making, problem-solving with you this year!
