Welcome to 7th Grade! I am so excited to share the journey of this coming school year with you. This year brings us all so many opportunities to grow and learn. We are all being challenged to have high expectations for ourselves. As your teacher, I will expect you to set goals for yourselves and work very hard to reach them. I promise to set high goals for myself as well. Reaching your goals can be scary and sometimes frustrating. It takes a very long time to become an expert at something that you aren’t yet so good at. In fact, scientists have proven that the only way to learn and get smarter is to attempt something new and work really, really hard at it… even if you make a lot of mistakes.
YES! I SAID IT! I WANT YOU TO MAKE A LOT OF MISTAKES!!!
