The Organized Mind Track Out program is a family owned business run by Janett and Vincent Cueto, two former Wake County Public School teachers with over 25 years combined experience. It was inspired by a Facebook post on our Apex/Cary Moms Group. A frustrated mom posted about her teenage daughter who struggled with prioritizing, time management, and just an overall lack of organization in all areas of her life, especially in school. Other moms commiserated, advised A.D.D testing, and some moms shared their own history with disorganization as a child and advised moms to just “hang in there”. As Wake County middle and high school teachers, we knew how these kids were struggling just to stay afloat. There had to be something out there! And when we didn’t find help, we decided to create it. The Organized Mind Track Out Camp was created to better prepare children for their transition into middle school and high school.
At The Organized Mind we develop our children’s executive functioning skills so that they can achieve their fullest potential, embrace challenges with a growth mindset, and fearlessly explore the world around them.
There’s scientific evidence that the neural connections grow and become stronger the more you struggle with learning and correct your mistakes. Based on research by Stanford Professor Carol Dweck and her colleagues, we know that students with a growth mindset - the belief that intelligence is not just something that you are born with - have higher levels of success than those with a fixed mindset. Teaching your students about this concept has the potential to make them grittier, more positive, and more successful in their career and everyday lives.
