Changing lives through education has been my passion and calling for over 35 years. Four years ago an exciting opportunity came my way when I worked with a team to develop a new early learning school model for my district.
At the end of the last school year I made a promise to myself that I would begin to teach mindset in a meaningful and memorable way. My school had been trained in mindset and done a book study of “Mindset” by Carol Dweck about three years ago, and the ideas really stuck with me.
Each year the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences and SAGE Publishing present the SAGE-CASBS Award, recognizing outstanding achievement in the understanding and advancement of the behavioral and social sciences as applied to pressing social issues. This year the recipient is Dr. Carol Dweck, whose career has been devoted to understanding how to help people fulfill their untapped potential. Dr. Dweck will deliver a public talk at CASBS on March 14, 2019. If you’re in the Bay Area, register to attend!
Sometimes the universe sends you exactly what you need. This was certainly the case in the middle of my second year as an elementary principal, when I was defeated and day dreaming of other career paths, and happened to stumble into a Growing Early Mindsets™ workshop facilitated by GEM author Dr. Kendra Coates.
