I am currently finishing my last grad class to become a literacy coach. For our final project I am working with an elementary special ed teacher and a high school special ed teacher. I am a fifth grade writing teacher. We have to do a presentation for a Spring Learning Fair at the college. Our presentation is Creating the Habits of a Growth Mindset. We have done lots of research on this topic and have been using it in classrooms. One of the pieces of research came from The Mind Up through the Goldie Hawn Foundation. I read the book 10 Minutes of Mindfulness and I have put it into practice the past 3 months. Every night when I climb into bed I set a meditation app for 10 minutes which helps me to calm my brain and fall asleep.In the morning I do the same thing when I wake up. I meditate for 10 minutes. It has helped me to be much calmer and has helped me to be more purposeful and focused.
