Lower School Teachers Focus on Positive Mindsets Over the Summer

Lower School teachers, Peggy Szczerbicki and Kim Miles, spent last week in Boston, MA at the Learning and the Brain Summer Institute which focused on promoting positive school climates and motivation in students.
Mrs. Szczerbicki and Mrs. Miles spent the week exploring topics about positive mindsets, student resilience, maintaining welcoming environments, and productive mindful experiences for both students and adults through purposeful and intentional efforts.

Attendees of the conference included teachers and administrators from preschool through college level traveling from throughout the United States and internationally. With time available in the afternoons to explore the area, the teachers visited many historical landmarks.

Mrs. Szczerbicki shares “Calvert teachers are fortunate for these valuable opportunities to be lifelong, year-round learners as we continuously prepare for our eager students.”
Calvert School is a coed independent lower and middle school.
