Dustin Bindreiff
Ed.D., Consultant for Mindset Works

Dustin has a passion for working with students experiencing trauma or emotional and behavior disorders. As a Mindset consultant, he works nationally with schools teaching students a “growth mindset.” This exciting work aims to improve school culture and achievement by incorporating research-based psychological interventions and social emotional learning supports to improve student motivation and engagement. His research helps districts address achievement gaps by combating psychological hurdles such as the “cultural mistrust” and “stereotype threats” many students experience as regular parts of their school experience.

Prior to his current role, he spent seven years working with large urban school districts, especially Title 1 schools, to develop behavior supports and Multi-Tiered System of Supports. His doctoral research focused on training general education teachers to implement behavior supports for at-risk students. Studying at Portland State University with many highly respected scholars in Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS), he gained a deep understanding of behavior supports at all tiers. Finally, with a business and accounting background he can offer districts detailed data analysis and guidance in creating more equitable systems and supports for those students most in need.
