Viewing students as assets and not deficits

Mitch Weathers is a high school teacher, adjunct college professor, and the creator and founder of Organized Binder. Mitch designed Organized Binder to help struggling students gain daily exposure to the non-cognitive skills and executive function needed to achieve in the classroom. Together with the Organized Binder Team he now helps teachers, schools, districts, and colleges implement the various versions of the system both nationally and internationally. Universities such as Stanford and Dominican University invite him to work with teacher candidates and he works with the new teacher support programs TIPS and BTSA to help beginning teachers adopt the system. Mitch speaks nationally at conferences like CTA, CLS, and NSTA. He is also formally advises a number of education technology companies and start-ups.   Mitch Weathers Highlights
