Ghandi says “Anyone can walk out into the world and be the change you want to see in the world!” Have you ever wondered how you might be able to live that life?
My vision is to live in a world where every student feel safe, enjoys learning everyday, identifies his/her unique talents, and feels fulfilled when they leave school.
In my opinion, school leaders are an essential component to the way a student engages or disengages with school.
One study by Louis, Wahlstrom, & Anderson (2010), suggests school leaders as being 2nd only to classroom instruction, when identifying the most critical factors to student learning.
One of the hardest things in life is figuring out how to manage challenges, disappointments, hurts, fear, and doubts. Have you ever wondered how you could be more mentally tough during these challenging times?
CONSCIOUS SCHOOL LEADERSHIP is intended to support teachers that want to become leaders and current educational leaders that want to enhance their ability to attack the obstacles of life as a school or district leader.
By sharing brain research, thinking of icons, stories, resources, and practical techniques, we will work together to find the supports that work best for your strengths as an educational leader.
Through coaching (one-on-one), webinars, and blog, let me support your person goals towards mastering school leadership.
I believe that mental toughness is the main difference in optimizing your personal power, and giving your the opportunity to live the live of your dreams!!
My beliefs stem from the ideas from Carol Dweck book, “Mindset” which distinguishes between a fixed mindset and growth mindset.
How do you know if you have a fixed mindset?
Well answer these questions below:
- Have you ever said that you were not good at something?
- Do you feel that some people are born smart while other are not?
- Have you ever quit on something because of a fear of failure?
- When you consider something new, do you ever think about all the things that might go wrong?
- Have you ever said, I wish I could do something, but never learned how to do it?
If you answered YES, to any of the above, you might have a fixed mindset. I believe I have found some strategies to support your transition from a fixed to growth mindset!
Now, I believe we all have fixed mindset in some area of our lives. For example, I am not going to jump in the middle of the ocean and think I will be able to swim to shore (growth mindset would not be all that I needed in that situation)! However, there are patterns that we can change in our day to day lives that could help us MAKE PROGRESS in some of the challenges in our lives.
The questions above are not for extreme cases, however they are for things that YOU WANT to do and may not know how to get there. Some examples might be: 1) Applying for a leadership position, 2) Improve interviewing skills, 3) Presenting an idea to the principal, 4) Have a tough conversation with a colleague, 5) Being more productive during the day, or 6) Building a relationship with challenging families.
I believe we all have the choice to change our lives for the better if we want to, so my question is WHAT IS HOLDING YOU BACK?
THIS BLOG AND COMMUNITY IS ABOUT YOU AND YOUR DESIRED GROWTH, GOALS, DREAMS, AND ASPIRATIONS! LET ME SERVE AND CONNECT YOU WITH OTHERS THAT ARE TRYING TO DO THE SAME WORK!

Let me support you in finding your gift!!! I am honored to have the opportunity to serve and partner with you on your journey!!
