Develop Diverse Talents in an Inclusive Classroom! 

Equity is a Talent Development Mindset

A Self-Paced, Interactive Online Course 

Equity in education. What does that mean to you? Equal access to high-quality opportunities?

Yes, but our children come to school with so many inequalities, don’t they? Circumstances beyond our control. It can become frustrating and exhausting for us to meet so many different needs.  

I want to share with you something powerful I’ve discovered—something over which we DO have control.

And, it can make all the difference – for our students and in our own professional lives.

What’s that? A talent development mindset!

"In Teach to Develop Talent: How to Motivate and Engage Tomorrow’s Innovators Today, Jeanne Paynter presents a brilliant way to cultivate future innovators by developing their talents. This is a very thoughtful, visionary, and practical book for educators."

- Yong Zhao, Foundation Distinguished Professor

"Gardner defined multiple intelligences in the 80s, Wiggins defined backwards design in the 90s, Daggett started the century off with the rigor/relevance framework, followed by Dweck who defined fixed and growth mindsets. Paynter’s Teach to Develop Talent is the next education revelation."

- Charla Bunker, Teacher Whittier Elementary Great Falls, MT

Learn how to identify and develop students’ cognitive and social-emotional skills, including curiosity, creativity, reasoning, persistence, empathy, and more.


"Finally, a book that describes in depth how to teach and assess the essential skills most needed to thrive in the innovation era. This book deserves to be read, re-read, annotated, and dog-eared by every K-12 educator."
- Tony Wagner, Senior Research Fellow, Learning Policy Institute
