"Brian applied a growth mindset as a teacher and principal and now applies it in his book. Our educational system does not provide gifted education for every child – yet. Reflections from educators and influential books, podcasts, and interviews illustrate the value of Brian's 5-shift path to create the schools we all want for our children. The principles and team culture he describes for PreK - 12 educators apply equally to teaching recent medical school graduates to become physicians and surgeons. This is a valuable read for anyone who wants to be a better educator. Let’s get all our children into the 'smart class.'"

— Steven L. Frick, MD, Professor and Vice Chair, Education, Stanford University School of Medicine, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery

Special Testimonial 

We have worked with educators in every state and in every province in Canada, and Brian is perhaps the finest elementary school principal we have ever known.


Although we have devoted our adult lives to the study of school improvement, some of our deepest learnings have occurred as a result of observing Brian’s leadership of a school.
