“Do not judge me by my success, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again.”
- Nelson Mandela

Resiliency requires a focus on emotions resulting in desired behaviors. These behaviors are learned over time and may be referred to as executive functions. Our students will be resilient when they are able to self-regulate, which is the process that enables us to plan, initiate, and complete an activity while regulating emotion, maintaining attention, and responding to feedback, and self-reflecting. Through these behaviors students are more equipped to evaluate their performance and learn from their experiences. Reflecting on successful outcomes promotes self-confidence and a sense of accomplishment, which produces motivated and engaged students.

As a district, we recognize that our students need the skills necessary to be resilient in the face of the adversity that comes with doing something for the first time, stepping out of a comfort zone, or knowing that events will happen to us that often are out of
our control. Having the skills to persevere and overcome challenges will be critical for our students as they set out to achieve their goals and aspirations no matter their path after graduation. Students who demonstrate resilience will be prepared to deal with setbacks and will persevere to try again to reach their desired outcome.
