Jayson's emphasis on “the power of Yet” is transformational. Before the school started, the teachers learned about the growth mindset and Carol Dweck's research. They listed areas that they hadn't mastered “yet.” The year started with teachers sharing their “not yet” items and then students set “not yet” goals. Improvement has become part of their culture with this shift.

“Continuous improvement and a growth mindset. It's every teacher, it's every staff member, it's every student, it's every day.”

Jayson Snyder is principal at a top 3 Title 1 improving school in Indiana. Featured in ECM Show #148.
