John D’Auria is the President of Teachers 21, a nonprofit professional development organization that supports educators so that they can better serve the needs of all students. His career has spanned four decades starting as a math teacher, guidance counselor, principal and superintendent. Dr. D’Auria has worked with hundreds of school leaders around sharpening the academic focus of school teams, developing a vibrant school culture, and managing conflict in the workplace. 

Dr. D’Auria’s research focuses on the ways in which the assumptions that people hold about intelligence significantly influence their learning. This summer he is collaborating with me to do a three day workshop on using leadership and and organizational psychology to develop leaders of school systems. The challenges these leaders and systems face require a new type of leadership and school culture that vastly differs from what has been acceptable for decades. He is here to share his unique perspective with us today.
