Hi there, I am Jeffrey Miller, the husband to the woman of my dreams and proud father of four children. I am a professional educator and aspiring writer striving to help everyone reach their full human potential. With nearly two decades of experience, I have served as a professional educator and administrator in both urban and suburban public school systems.

Regarding the relationship between effort and aptitude, I developed this belief because of my experiences in dealing with personal challenges. However, these ideas were validated and made more relevant to my career as an educator when I read the book Mindset Matters by Carol Dweck. Dweck’s presentation on mindsets reveals that beyond intelligence, the type of mindset one has (i.e., fixed or growth) impacts personality development.
