Growth Mindset Works … for teachers too

“Teachers … should send messages that intelligence is fluid, and they (themselves) need to hear such messages too. They need to keep growing especially in these challenging and changing times. [T]hey, too, need permission to learn – the freedom to stretch themselves, make mistakes, and try again. Only in growth mind-set cultures, where teachers … are encouraged to fulfil their potential, will they be able to help their students fulfil their potential in schools that are free of bias.” (1)
