Welcome to Indiana EdCast, I am Tom Mellish, ED for IRTA, The Association that advocates for all Indiana retired educators. Please email me at tmellish@retiredteachers.org with your questions. We will find out the answer for you.

Today we are joined by Shannon Anderson from Rensselaer Elementary. We welcome Mrs. Anderson and look forward to her thoughts on various educational topics, instructional and classroom ideas and as an author of children’s books. Shannon is a wife, mother, runner, educator, author, and workshop presenter. In this episode, Shannon and I discuss applying Growth Mindset concepts in the classroom. Shannon answers these questions and much more:

  • What made you decide to incorporate Growth Mindset concepts into your classroom?
  • What were some of the first steps, activities that you used to kick it off?
  • How long did it take to get the procedures set up?
