Helping Create Growth Mindset Communities


What We’re All About


Pomegranate Lab was built on the belief that everyone is capable of learning and growing. Founded and run by teachers, we champion the needs and goals of fellow teachers and care about their students as if they were our own. We aim to fundamentally shift the conversation in education from one based on performance to one based on improvement.


Mindsets Matter

Fixed Mindset

Students with a fixed mindset see themselves as static and unchanging. These students fear failure, look down on effort, and never reach their full potential.

Smart People

are born smart and dumb people are born dumb.


is a waste and only proves a lack of natural talent.


“I wasn’t as smart as I thought I was.”

Growth Mindset

Students with a growth mindset see themselves as capable of change. These students learn from failure, value effort, and maximize their potential.

Smart People

weren’t born that way but became smart by working.


is the only way get better at anything.


“I’ll learn from this and do better next time.”

One-on-one coaching focused on more growth minded instruction, assessment and behavior management. On-site and remote options are available, as well as access to our Growth Mindset Playbook. Click here for more information about the Coaching Program.


Group workshops that focus on a specific strategy related to our Growth Mindset messages. In the first half, teachers will learn the theory behind the message. In the second half, teachers will create a plan for application and/or an artifact (lesson plan, assignment, rubric, etc) based on the strategy covered.
