Teaching Kindness: 7 Mindsets at Tobias Elementary

 

“You can be 19th in line, and you still get to eat. You still get to learn.”

Reflecting on how Kindergarten-aged children often rush to be first in line, Jennifer Higa-Rolls shares her approach to teaching kindness and perspective using the 7 Mindsets.

In today’s social climate, this is a lesson we would all benefit from practicing!

This year, 7 Mindsets explores seven schools from across the United States with a film crew in tow. Our second stop is Tobias Elementary near Austin, TX, a school community that has embraced the Growth Mindset, while implementing The 7 Mindsets as a structure and common language for social and emotional learning.
This is a community of explorers who live by a rigorous, yet light-hearted commitment to each whole child. Enjoy!
