This was certainly the case in the middle of my second year as an elementary principal, when I was defeated and day dreaming of other career paths, and happened to stumble into a Growing Early Mindsets™ workshop facilitated by GEM author Dr. Kendra Coates.
January ushers in new opportunities and possibilities. For us educators it’s an opportunity to reflect on our challenges and mistakes, apply new learning, recommit to our short and long-term goals, and translate ideas into action.
Most of us pay close attention to how our body feels. We visit the doctor when we're sick and alter our diet when we react negatively to certain foods. But, how many of us pay attention to our mental well-being? The mind works in a similar way to the body, thriving off of healthy choices and struggling under stress.
