This article in the Dispatch displays a great example of humility, grit, and perseverance. It was also very timely as our teachers went through a full day of inservice on Monday, January 15th that centered around concepts of student growth and how important it is that we all employ a “growth” mindset. While it’s important to celebrate specific milestones– like winning your division in the Geneseo Wrestling Invitational, or being selected for ILMEA Music All-State, or scoring well on your SAT test– it’s also important to focus on what that 1% additional, daily steps towards improvement can make.
Thank you, Billy, for reminding us of the progress and growth that you have made; and for reminding all of us that tomorrow we can choose to work to be a little bit better than we are today!
