Commitment to Learning

Blog Post created by Rachael Sweeten on Feb 19, 2020

As designers and teachers, we are on a relentless quest to present the best quality information for our students in the most effective ways possible. We acknowledge we can always do better and our students deserve this effort!

 

With that in mind, I offer this support to teachers to help each of your students embrace the Growth Mindset and personal commitment to learning. 

 

Rachael's Recommendation for Starting Each Semester

I introduce myself and state my commitment:

 

"My commitment to you is that I will do my best to teach you valuable information that will make your life better. The sum total of my life's knowledge will be your starting point. In return, I'm asking you to be committed to learning. 

Remember, the worst teacher in the world cannot stop you if you are committed to learning."-NRS

Heartfelt credits for the inspiration go to the old-school motivational speaker Zig Ziglar:

“If you are not willing to learn, no one can help you. If you are determined to learn, no one can stop you.”
