Workshop Overview

This workshop will help teachers implement a growth mindset curriculum, which has been proven to lead to greater motivation levels and higher achievement for students, in their classrooms. Through experiential and interactive activities, we will learn strategies to increase our own growth mindsets as educators, as well as how to develop and integrate the growth mindset philosophy in your classroom. In this workshop, Kim will give you the tools to implement a growth mindset curriculum that is super-easy, but offers big benefits for your classroom community. And you’ll leave with ready-to-go lessons that will help develop gritty, determined, self-reliant students who know that if they work hard enough they can and will accomplish great things.

  • I’m telling you, this literacy trainer is awesome! If you have a chance to attend yourself and/or get teachers to go, it would be extremely worth it. I contracted with her several times when I was the professional development coordinator for the Southern Indiana Education Center, and the teachers and literacy coaches who attended couldn’t get enough of her!

    R. Moore, Director of Education in Indiana
  • Simply put, I have never worked with a consultant that so completely wins over all teachers and so quickly influences their thinking and teaching strategies
