Capacity: How to Build It

Eva Mireles3rd grade teacher, 4th grade teacher, 5th grade teacher, The Reading Teacher's Playbook Podcast, Upper Elementary

I talk about:

-What growing your capacity means to you as a literacy leader in your classroom.

-Why you should want to embark on a journey of being a lifelong learner and how this decision impacts your students.

-How to grow your capacity in a sustainable way


-As lifelong learners we have to know how to pace ourselves.

-The reality is that you can’t be great at everything all the time and you can’t refine everything all at once.

-Our commitment to growth directly impacts our student’s growth.
