Gemma Sanchez and Elizabeth Cronshaw

Gemma and Liz are the curators of Grow your Mindset.  


Gemma has been a Primary School Teacher for over 12 years working in Greater Manchester and Lancashire. Liz has been a Primary School Teacher for 9 years working in Lancashire.

Gemma remains a class teacher and official Kagan Cooperative Learning Trainer for the North-West. She worked a longside Liz as a middle leader during their time together in Lancashire.  Liz is also a teacher within KS1, Curriculum Innovator middle leader and has a passion for developing children's engagement through the use of creativity and technology in the classroom.

In the autumn of 2016 Liz and Gemma built Grow your Mindset  in their local pub, meeting once a week to discuss their business ideas and plans. They thrashed out ideas with another great CPD trainer, Rob Smith, who helped them begin their journey. Soon afterwards their twitter page was attracting visitors in their hundreds from all around the world and now their webpage too!

Both Liz and Gemma believe in strong, high impact and interactive CPD and have already begun to get requests, through social media, to deliver training to staff in schools and at conferences. Their first invitation being at 'Teach Meet Rammy', held annually at Holcombe Brook Primary School, Bury. Liz and Gemma are striving to put together a series of CPD training sessions that can empower the whole school community in their quest to becoming either a 'Growth Mindset' or 'Habits of Mind' school.


After training and carrying out the project over a year, delivering staff meetings, building workshops for parents and working with the children in the school, Liz and Gemma felt the benefits of what they had done needed sharing with the wider teaching community. 'Grow your Mindset' was born.
