Why are schools encouraging students to fail? Come learn about the Growth Mindset and how schools are capitalizing on moments of failure to teach students how to ultimately succeed. Dr. Price’s talk will be based on Carol Dwecks’s book Mindset: The New Psychology of Success and will explore how to approach struggles in a manner that maximizes the potential for growth. This talk will also include an interactive challenge for all participants, as we learn together from our struggles.

Dr. Jennifer Price is beginning her third year as Superintendent of Schools in North Andover, Massachusetts. Prior to becoming a Superintendent, Jen spent nine years as Principal of Newton North High School. During her tenure at this large, comprehensive high school, she focused much of her work on narrowing racial and socio-economic achievement gaps and supporting innovative approaches and ideas.

She received her Doctorate in Education from Harvard Graduate School of Education in 2012, her Masters in Educational Administration from Boston College in 1999 and her Bachelors in Public Policy from Princeton in 1994. She co-authored a chapter with Dan Koretz on assessment literacy in Datawise.
