Dr. Gravity Goldberg explodes the myth that teachers are deficient and only the perfect training, policy, or program can magically fix these deficits. Instead, she argues, we can start “from a place of curiosity and discovery” where we “own our gifts and talents and try to build from strengths.”
In a recent podcast hosted by Angela Watson’s “Truth for Teachers,” Dr. Goldberg proposes three mindset shifts to help teachers teach to their authentic potential:
1. Shifting from being interesting to being interested.
2. Shifting from predicting failure to building on success.
3. Shifting from their (students’) challenge to my challenge.
