Growth Mindset In The Classroom

Future proofing children to inspire them to engage in their learning, persist in their efforts while nurturing self-esteem and self-belief.

Focused on the 6 CAN-DO Mindset Keys;

    Practice
    Effort
    Action
    Acknowledgement
    Feedback
    Reflection 

CAN-DO Growth Mindset is a concept developed by Kerry that provides a way for educators to encourage children to learn about their ‘thinking’ and ‘mindset’. It shows how their thoughts play a significant role in the way they view their options and the choices they make in bringing out the best in themselves and others.

The workshop provides the theory behind Growth Mindset and the Can-Do Toolkit and demonstrates ways to confidently use the language of Growth Mindset with these resources every day in creative and engaging ways.

BOOK KERRY

"It was such a great investment in Professional Development with personalised, flexible, and authentic guidance" -  Keriann Reissenberger 

During 2022, whilst preparing for the huge task of transitioning in three staff to fill the positions of three long term staff (including myself), it all felt a little overwhelming. As is often the case, there was also unexpected personal stuff happening at the time of professional responsibilities.

However, engaging Kerry Spina as a mentor the process all fell into place. Kerry worked alongside me and the incoming Nominated Supervisor/Teacher/Director to achieve positive change and smooth workplace transitions. We established clarity of our values and our own Strengths Profile. With Kerry's ongoing support we have been able to move forward with our current organisational values and how they look in action. Kerry will work with the 2023 team to move forward with how they will put their values into action.

The review of our philosophy and values has been enriched by the deeper reflections this process has allowed and what seemed initially overwhelming has direction and purpose. It was such a great investment in Professional Development with personalised, flexible, and authentic guidance.

Thank you, Kerry, for sharing and guiding us in this process.

 
July 2022 - Teacher/Leader at C&K Western Suburbs

"Kerry was open to make whatever we needed, happen!’ – Anthea Lewis, member of the

St Anthony’s Parents and Friends Association."

Our Parents and Friends (P&F) Association engaged with Kerry to organise growth mindset sessions for our parents and carers. The aim was to complement professional development our school’s teaching staff had recently received. As a parent body, we felt it was key to offer our school community a similar opportunity to support a foundational understanding of what growth mindset is and what it looks like in practice. It offered parents and carers the chance to become familiar with the language and thinking behind growth mindset. The sessions helped to create a way for parents and carers to connect home with the classroom and gain valuable insights into their child’s learning and well-being.

Kerry worked with me to shape the sessions to provide a solid introduction as well as incorporating pointers on how to support our children through their mistakes. To see Kerry in her element presenting such a powerful topic puts a smile on your face. The way Kerry blends her life lessons and vulnerabilities as a parent in with her professional experience as a parent educator, has a way of making everyone feel at ease and comfortably human.

The Townsville and surrounding communities are so fortunate to have such a quality educator and speaker as accessible as we do. I’d highly recommend engaging with Kerry Spina to discuss the possibilities for your next information session or event.

"Armed with exuberance and commitment, Kerry can be relied upon to deliver fit for purpose sessions, tailor-made to the needs and knowledge base of staff."

I have attended several of Kerry's PD sessions, as a teacher and as a leader, and have found them nurturing and thought-provoking. Each presentation brings something new and builds on previous sessions, assisting participants to make links between known and new knowledge. Armed with exuberance and commitment, Kerry can be relied upon to deliver fit for purpose sessions, tailor-made to the needs and knowledge base of staff. She blends theory with practice and equips teachers with a toolkit to practise their learning in a real sense.

 
Change within an organisation can be challenging, particularly regarding beliefs about children, pedagogy, and classroom culture. Kerry works closely with leaders to ensure that the sessions offered are responsive to the needs of staff. This is enacted in a manner that keeps at its core, authentic respect for the teaching profession and the inherent knowledge within it. She works intentionally at stretching individual and group comfort zones within a safe space; whilst acknowledging the journey that change requires.
