Leadership Day - Thursday, November 13, 2014 9-11AM 

"The Leader in Me" Leads Students to Academic Excellence!

Thousands of adults have benefited from Stephen Covey’s Seven Habits of Highly Effective People since that book was first published more than 20 years ago, and now, HISD students are starting to benefit from it, too.

Over the years, that self-help classic has been refined and reimagined to help young people cultivate a sense of personal responsibility and leadership skills, and the result is “The Leader in Me (LIM),” which is currently in place at Longfellow Elementary School and two other HISD campuses, Shearn ES and Garden Oaks Montessori.

“’The Leader in Me’ provides the most solid foundation I have ever seen to help kids lead a principled, centered life,” said Longfellow ES Principal Norma Perez-Gwynn. “It has made an incredible difference with our children.”

The program challenges students to live by seven basic tenets that encourage personal responsibility and an appreciation of others, such as “Begin with the end in mind,” and “Think win-win.”

“It’s all about teaching them that they are responsible for their own choices,” said school counselor Garland Spiller.
