The Power of Perspectives: Developing and Promoting a Growth Mindset
Speaker: Theresa Melito-Conners, Ph.D. (Dr. MC), Special Education Administrator for Melrose Public Schools & Founder of Dr. MC's Self-Care Cabaret
Description: Dr. Carol Dweck's revolutionary research on mindsets sets the stage for this training. Exploring our mindsets, whether it is a fixed or a growth mindset, allows us to examine our true potential. In this workshop, participants will learn the difference between a growth mindset and a fixed mindset and how it pertains to working with students. Additionally, participants will evaluate their mindset to see where their beliefs are and discuss how small shifts in thinking and reframing circumstances can have a dramatic impact on daily life.
