“The Novice Mindset is the belief that we grow continuously through fearless, deliberate practice.” – Jon Eckert
You know the feeling of facing a new challenge? It’s daunting, but it’s exhilarating.
Facing new challenges makes us better people; it gives us the chance to expand our skills and our knowledge. It forces us to ask questions, take risks, reflect, and revise, revise, revise. Teachers face new challenges every single day—whether they’re twenty-year veterans or first-year survivors. Adopting this novice mindset gives educators an advantage: a relentless desire to learn and innovate.
In his new book, Jon Eckert reveals how teachers at all stages in their career can succeed and retain their passion for learning and teaching despite obstacles. With humor and grace, he shares his own cringe-worthy stories to show how even the most unlikely situations are opportunities for growth and fearless practice.
