Through the implementation of 7 Mindsets this year, I have seen a change in my classroom culture and the way that my students connect with others. At JCDS, we have always included character education as a part of our daily curriculum. However, the 7 Mindsets lessons and resources have enhanced the conversations and activities going on within the classrooms, the school, and at home.
The students know more about one another and are finding ways to build relationships that may not have formed otherwise. As a teacher, I know more about them as a child, not just as a student. This allows me to connect with each child on a deeper level and increases the engagement and motivation from them.
