Kara Davis bio

"[In fifth grade] I decided that I didn't have a 'math brain.'  And, no surprise, I found math more difficult from that point on. Once I became a teacher and began to learn about growth versus fixed mindset, I realized how much I had developed a fixed mindset when it came to math. After I began to teach fourth grade, I saw how important it was for students who found school easy to be challenged so that they wouldn't give up when faced with difficult things. I also realized how important it was for students to develop an understanding about how powerful and flexible our brains are." — Spotlight interview
