Webinar: Building the Excellence Mindset into your Teachers
September 19, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Presented by John Wink, Superintendent of Blue Ridge ISD in Blue Ridge, Texas; hosted by Jason Bedford, Senior Vice President of Client Engagement and Success at DreamBox Learning
Excellence is not a goal or even a result. It is within every student and every teacher, and the job of a leader is to create the conditions where the adults in the building work collaboratively to pull the excellence out of every student and every adult in the building.
In this session, superintendent John Wink will share what it takes to build a growth mindset. He will explore a range of strategies to use to cultivate the excellence mindset at your school, including:
- Changing our language
- Embracing the power in making mistakes
- Teaching tenacity
- Promoting perseverance
- Empowering teachers to take calculated risks and chase growth
John will field questions from attendees during this live, interactive session. Join him to learn how to provide targeted supports to help your teachers become excellent teachers. This webinar is designed for district and building administrators, teacher leaders, instructional coaches, and educators.
