Principal's Weekly Message

Dear Parents and Community Members,

During our staff in-service prior to the start of school, we discussed Dr. Carol S. Dweck’s research on Mindset. Dr. Dweck is a world-renowned Stanford University psychologist and author of the book “Mindset: The New Psychology of Success.”

Simply put, achievement and success comes from how we approach our goals and views, not just from abilities and talents. Her research shows that students who believed that intelligence can be developed (a growth mindset) outperformed those students who thought their intelligence was fixed (a fixed mindset). She also found that focusing on the process creates learning. These views complement the Montessori philosophy.

At the in-service, we read the book, discussed in small groups and then presented to the whole staff. We have several children’s books on mindset that our teachers will be reading in class.

As Montessorians, we guide the children in developing a positive attitude towards learning. Using the Montessori materials, we provide different ways to learn skills and concepts and continue to focus on the process. Engaging in community meetings, peer support, and group work are some of the activities we do that definitely promote a growth mindset.

Dr. Dweck has several you tube videos about mindset which you may be interested to check out. I also have a few books you may check out. Email me or call the office if you would like to borrow a copy.

Have a wonderful week!
