Sara Grieme - 6-8 Building Learning Coordinator

I have been a proud member of the Carlisle community since 2003.  I currently am the 6-8 Building Learning Coordinator (BLC) and enjoy collaborating with CMS teachers to provide quality instruction to ALL students.  Everyday I get the opportunity to see and support the great learning opportunities happening at CMS!  Before becoming a BLC in 2015, I was an 8th grade literacy teacher at CMS.  
My educational background includes a BA from Northwestern College, Orange City, IA in 2003.  I majored in elementary education and have endorsements in K-6 Elementary, K-8 Reading, and 5-8 Middle School.  In 2007, I received my Masters Degree from Viterbo University.  I received a Reading Specialist endorsement as part of that program.  Currently I am in the Education Leadership Program at Drake University and pursuing my Specialist Degree.  I plan to graduate in December 2018.
Outside of school, I enjoy playing the piano, spending time with my family, reading, and walking my dog Kemper.

Learning Pit and Growth Mindset
Learning is hard work!  
CMS teachers and staff are continuously working with students to develop a growth mindset.  As students are introduced to new content and skills, they are challenged to embrace the mindset of "I have not learned it YET" instead of "I can't do it."  The below image is found in each CMS classroom and reinforces to students that learning comes with challenge and struggle, and they can get out of the pit with a growth mindset, perseverance, and embracing the supports provided.
