Twin Parks Montessori School’s Education Team, including all teachers are talking about the predictors for long term success in schools for children today.

It is learning to wait, following through, trying hard. Living life like a marathon rather than a short run. Watch this talk by Angela Lee Duckworth about the key to success: Grit!
