Franklin Elementary School

The Leader In Me program focuses on changing culture in a school toward a productive mindset. It’s built on Steven R. Covey’s world famous 7 Habits for the Highly Productive, and works to integrate those habits into the administration, faculty, and– ultimately– the students of a school.

This program is a big deal. At its core, the Leader In Me ingrains an attitude of self-empowerment into the mindsets of students that can be life altering. A mindset that gives students the tools to accomplish any goal they set out to achieve.

But first, before the teachers can empower their students, they must empower themselves.

From 8:45 to 3:00, a handful of teachers and administrators learned about and began applying the principles to their own work. They discussed how they can use the 7 principles framework to help support the programs set in place to help students. For the whole of the day, the teachers became students. Learning, it turns out, is a lifelong endeavor.

This next year will be an exciting time for Franklin. We want our students to have a leadership mentality, and this new program will help each student achieve that. And our teachers will be hard at work to bring it into their lives.

Los profesores de Franklin aprenden durante toda la vida

El programa Leader In Me se centra en cambiar la cultura de una escuela hacia una mentalidad productiva. Se basa en el famoso libro de Steven R. Covey 7 hábitos para ser altamente productivo, y rabaja para integrar esos hábitos en la administración, el profesorado y, en última instancia, los estudiantes de una escuela. Este programa es algo grande. En esencia, el Líder que hay en mí inculca una actitud de autocapacitación en la mentalidad de los estudiantes que puede cambiarles la vida. Una mentalidad que da a los estudiantes las herramientas para alcanzar cualquier meta que se propongan. Pero primero, antes de que los profesores puedan capacitar a sus alumnos, deben capacitarse a sí mismos. De 8:45 a 3:00, un puñado de profesores y administradores aprendieron y empezaron a aplicar los principios a su propio rabajo. Debatieron cómo pueden utilizar el marco de los 7 principios para apoyar los programas establecidos para ayudar a los estudiantes. Durante odo el día, los profesores se convirtieron en alumnos. Resulta que el aprendizaje es un esfuerzo permanente. El año que viene será apasionante para Franklin. Queremos que nuestros alumnos engan mentalidad de liderazgo, y este nuevo programa ayudará a cada uno de ellos a conseguirlo. Y nuestros profesores rabajarán duro para llevarlo a sus vidas.
