Feedback form is now closed.
One of the characteristics of highly intelligent students is the strong desire to master. While this can be a positive quality, it can result in a limiting perfectionism when coupled with unrealistic expectations. Additionally, students lack the tools needed to help them persevere when they face struggle. As educators at Nueva, we have seen the rise of perfectionism in our students in recent years. What can we as educators do to foster a healthy approach to growth and mastery? Join us as we look more closely at perfectionism in our younger students and share the ways in which we can support them in developing a balanced approach to learning.

Leave this workshop with ideas that will empower your students!
