GISSV middle schoolers kicked off the 2nd semester with motivation workshops to start successfully and with the right mindset.
Public speaker and psychologist Max Weigand worked with our students from grades 5 to 8 on motivation and goal achievement, learning techniques, and dealing with emotions.
"I learned that learning is not only about time, but also the intensity and attention you pay to the material you're studying."
"I wrote a lot of things down and will use them. Since I am an athlete and my team is not playing well, I can really use the motivation."
"Thank you, Max, for teaching us all how to get motivated and stay motivated when doing things we don't necessarily want to do."
