106: Students Under Construction

Students come to us in their roughest state. Its up to us educators to cultivate a mindset and environment that polishes students into their potential. Tune in to hear three action steps to ensure every student reaches their best self under your leadership in the classroom.


  • As educators we are the tools to chip away the immaturity and insecurity and shape students to become responsible citizens.
  • Every moment you think positivity and possibilities, you create the foundation for such things to take place in your presence
  • Every kid you come into contact with is part of who you become and you are part of who they become.
  • I hope your roster is full of kids that need you and kids that you need.
  • Every kid needs you, they just need you differently.

About the author, Gretchen

I am a teacher trainer and coach. Working elbow to elbow with teachers and teacher leaders to ensure instructional proficiency and student achievement soar lights me up. We have a real need in our nation for strong educators to remain in the field. My blog, book, podcast, courses and instructional materials are geared towards empowering teachers (and those that lead them) to receive the support needed to grow and thrive today, tomorrow and always.
