Your feedback was so positive, that it got my wheels turning about what we share with each other, and what I share with you--particularly here on Voices from the Field. I think it's vitally important to share our successes with each other, since it can be difficult to get out of our classes and see what others are doing. But it can be just as powerful to share our struggles as well.
Dawn and I are working on a monthly newsletter that we will be sending out soon, and our first issue is focused on the idea of having a growth mindset, or seeing our mistakes or failures as learning opportunities. If you have any insight on this matter, please let me know and maybe we can include your thoughts or words in the newsletter.
In the meantime, here is some food for thought: I'm working on a concept I'm calling "One Minute PD." I know we're all busy and yet we want to improve our practice, so I started making some one minute videos that I hope you'll like. This one has to do with the growth mindset. If you like it, feel free to share.
And just in case you're like me, and the growth mindset doesn't come naturally to you, here's a link to another blogger who shares some words about having patience with yourself.
