“I will be frank, that this year I was surprised by the depth of knowledge of my new co-teacher about growth mindset and ways of creating a physically and emotionally safe classroom environment. She immediately identified factors that contributed to a safe physical, social-emotional, and intellectual learning environment and noticed students who needed help in regulating their emotions, managing stress, controlling impulses, and persevering in overcoming obstacles.”
