DWE students introduce Dr. Sconzo to the "power of yet"

Dr. Sconzo visits DWE
Students at Deerwood Elementary School introduced Superintendent Dr. Guy Sconzo to the "power of yet," an initiative where students engage in positive self-talk to focus on what they can improve.  DWE Counselor Holly Miller said "We want the students to have the courage to say I can't yet, rather than I can't."
Humble ISD emphasizes The Great 8 as skills that everyone needs to be successful. These include self-awareness, social-awareness, self-management, goal-directed behavior, relationship skills, personal responsibility, decision making, and optimistic thinking. Initiatives such as "the power of yet" allow students to re-frame their thought process in order to build upon these skills.
