Our goal here at Rosie is to be riveting, which you could also call “motivating.” But how exactly do we consider motivation from a teacher’s mindset? That’s the focus of our latest interview with Dr. Sandra Deemer, professor of educational psychology at Millersville University. We cover a number of topics related to motivation including: helping high achievers move beyond grades, taking risks in the classroom, and the importance of understanding our own motivations as teachers.
