We have been inundated with using growth mindset as the secret tool to use with our students to help them achieve and learn but…How do we manage all the extra paperwork? How do we deal with that challenging student or parent? How do we provide self-care? What is the secret to teaching? Dr. Elaine Alden is currently in the middle of her twentieth year as an elementary educator and serving as an Instructional Mathematics Coach at Benjamin Franklin Elementary School in the Lakeland Central School District. Dr. Alden received her Bachelor’s of Science in Elementary Education and Psychology from SUNY New Paltz, a Master’s of Science in Education Evaluation and Instructional Technology from Fordham University and a Doctorate in Instructional Leadership from St. John’s University.
Always seeking challenges and pursuing the course to further her personal and professional development, Dr. Alden embraced the Learning Styles initiative and has assisted in training educators who are eager to embrace the Learning styles approach in helping their students reach their full academic potential regardless of their learning differences. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
