Is your gifted student afraid of failure, hesitant to take risks, and/or difficult to motivate? Did you know that praising intellect and talent may jeopardize self-esteem and accomplishment, instead of fostering these traits? Join us for an insightful discussion about how your child’s mindset toward learning and knowledge can influence academic growth and productivity…and how you can help teach the simple idea of a Growth Mindset.

She provides professional development for K-12 teachers, administrators, parents, and students in the areas of differentiation, gifted programming, academic service learning, brain research, 21st century skills and competencies, leadership, curriculum, the importance of a growth mindset, and other gifted issues.
