A group of colleagues want to implement The Leader in Me at our elementary school. Two summers ago, we read this book together and tried to develop some lessons. Some teachers continued to work through this last school year and even visited a school that has implemented the program school wide.
In case you are not familiar with The Leader in Me, it is based on Stephen R. Covey's book
The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People:
1. Be proactive.
2. Begin with the end in mind.
3. Put first things first.
4. Think win/win.
5. Seek first to understand, then be understood.
7. Sharpen the saw.
We just hired a new teacher who has used this program with fifth graders, sixth graders, and kindergartners. Talking with her has re-energized me to try again this year.
I would love to hear from other teachers who have worked in schools with this program. You can leave me a comment on this blog, or connect with me on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/#!/TeachingResourcesbyMaryBauer
