The Leader in Me
I have been reading the book The Leader in Me by Stephen R Covey and am really enjoying what I have been reading. He is also the author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. The book does touch on the habits of highly effective people, but mostly focuses on how to make your school as successful as it can be. Each school needs to look at what makes it unique and special and use that to help inspire your school to become a leader in that area. It takes everyone in the community to help a school succeed. Parents and students, teachers and administrators all have to be willing to "do what it takes." The book also gives examples of schools and the way they are "inspiring greatness." I am anxious to read and learn more about how to make our own school more effective.
