Ricci Provides You With Everything You Need and More!
As an educator who works with students in both the primary and intermediate grades, I found this book to be extremely useful.  Not only does it supply educators with details as to how to build a growth mindset culture in the schoolhouse, but also provides multiple resources for lesson implementation.  Ricci’s lesson plans, professional development resources, and technology-based supplements are well designed and show that she clearly understands the demands of teaching in the twenty-first century.  I highly recommend this book to all educators, parents and students.

A Must Have Resource for the Upcoming School Year!
As an educator who works with both students and teachers, I am excited to have this book at my fingertips. Mary Cay Ricci has taken the ideas from her first book and created ready to use activities to help schools develop a growth mindset, both as a staff and in the classroom.

One of the most important aspects of this book is that all the strategies are ones Mary Cay has used and found success with.

I have already shared the title with principals in my district, suggesting they buy copies for their staff.
