Based on a book entitled Pedagogy of Confidence: Inspiring High Intellectual Performance in Urban Schools by Yvette Jackson, Amanda will be speaking about educational leadership that is based on our belief systems about the students we are serving.  She will be talking about Growth Mindset and Strength/Relationship based connections that engage the entire community in supporting student success.  She wants to help educators to see challenging students and parents as opportunities and strengths rather than deficits; all part of building a culture where everyone is involved in supporting the success of our students.
