In her book Mindset, author and researcher Carol Dweck suggests that “we are what we think,” an idea with very real implications for the work of school leaders. As we define and explore the impact of working from “fixed” or “growth” mindsets in our schools, we learn that our mindsets have powerful implications for principal leadership, teacher expectations and practice, school culture, and ultimately, the success of the students we serve.
Join NASSP Professional Development Specialist and former principal Janice Ollarvia and Carol Dweck as they dive deeper into Mindset. Also featured in this program will be Erik Burmeister, California Middle Level Principal of the Year and finalist for MetLife/NASSP National Principal of the Year, who will bring the practitioner’s perspective to the conversation.
During this live, interactive event, you can address questions directly to Carol, chat with other webcast attendees, and expand the conversation on Twitter using the #mindsetchat hashtag. All participants receive a certificate of participation following the webcast.
