Julian Corbett

After some thoughtful discussion, they identified four traits they felt were most important: focus, engagement, a growth mindset and a positive attitude. 

The students even made a video with tips to help their peers (and any parents or teachers) who might need a little encouragement. Check it out by following this link!
