For the past five years or more, I’ve attempted to embrace growth mindset in my practice. This shift has reshaped how I think about my failures, what risks I take, and the kinds of learning opportunities I create for each of the students I work with. I want to work through my own struggles and I want my students to do the same. However, as I moved into an instructional coaching position this year, I found myself all too often judging teachers for where they were at rather than having a growth mindset with regard to their development. Over time, though, I’ve come to realize I need to help my teachers, as I did my students, work within an environment of productive struggle. As I learn to take this approach with teachers, I see that they then transfer this same growth mindset to their students.

This week, I encourage you to explore coaching with a growth mindset, then extend this exploration into reflecting upon and refining your practice in the name of student success — much in the way Tch Laureate Tom Jenkins approached writing in his STEM classroom.
