Welcome 7th graders! I am so excited to guide your learning this year. Your brain is a muscle. Just like your leg and arm muscles, it gets stronger the more you use it. Together, we will grow from the "fixed" mindset that keeps our muscles weak to the "growth" mindset that allows us to strengthen our muscles as we make mistakes, fail at our attempts, learn from those mistakes, and incorporate our grit by adopting the "YET" perspective.
