The Leader In Me

You may have noticed a buzz in the air here at BPE.  Teachers and students are using language like...

  • Be Proactive
  • Begin with the End In Mind
  • Put First Things First
  • Think Win-Win
  • Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood
  • Synergize
  • Sharpen the Saw

This language and principles come from The Leader In Me.  Our staff started to take the lessons of the "7 Habits of Happy Kids"and apply them to everyday work and life here at school.  Teachers read "The Leader In Me" book this past summer to prepare for this journey.  As the year continues, our staff will continue to receive training so that they can learn more and apply these leadership skills in conjunction with the daily curriculum and activities.  It will take almost three years before we can apply to be a Lighthouse School through The Leader In Me process.

If you are wanting more info, plan on reading the "7 Habits of Happy Kids" to get the gist of these skills.  I recommend "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Families" because you can see how these habits also work within the family entity.  I read this book and the lessons have helped me as father and husband in my own life.
