About Us

Thank you for visiting our website. We genuinely hope that you find value in the community we are building here. 

TTYB was created out of a desire to improve our own language and teaching practices. After learning about Growth Mindset and researching and writing a practitioner research paper on this topic, the need for a system of simple micro lessons became very obvious.

We are all way too busy to fit yet another large teaching area into our days ... but unless growth mindset is taught daily you won't see the benefits. Hence, the TTYB teaching resource is a whole years worth of lessons that are no more than 15 minutes long. 

TTYB is written to easily slot into your teaching day. We do the lessons as part of our morning routine as we like the way it sets the tone for the day. The micro-lessons are only 10 mins but the language is then used all day.

If you would like to get to know us better we have some quick blurbs below, or even better, drop us an email from the website or find us on Facebook and say hello! We would love to hear from you :)
