Teachers and Parents: Stop Telling Kids You're Bad at Math 11/05/2023

โ€œOur beliefs about ourselves are shaped by the voices we hear, especially during our formative years. As educators, parents, and role models, we hold a responsibility in modeling these beliefs. Letโ€™s champion a narrative where challenges are embraced as opportunities for growth, where the process of learning is celebrated more than the outcome, and where every child believes in their math potential.โ€
