In Episode 30, Zack & Pete talk with Debbie Kerschner about the Growth Mindset - a belief system that an individual's most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work— that brains and talent are just the starting point. This view is meant to create a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment. Kerschner is a 6th grade English teacher at the Wilson School District in Pennsylvania. Her blog, GrowthMindsetSuccessForAll.org focuses on the formula “Time + Effort = Success,” and attracts many readers daily.
