Cultivating a Growth Mindset

Our mindset guides our actions, reactions and behaviors. A growth mindset equals intelligence that can be developed. Educators with this mindset work harder because they know they can grow and improve their performance. Participants will learn growth mindset strategies and how to use professional development goal setting during the evaluation process.
