Website Wednesday: Growth Mindset = Success for All

by Kristie Burk

Since it’s summer, perhaps you would like a little more reading material? If so, I highly encourage you to check out Deborah Kerschner’s blog on growth mindset. Inspired by the book Mindset: A New Psychology for Success by Carol S. Dweck, Kerschner blogs about her experiences as a sixth grade teacher and her mantra that “time + effort = excellence.”
