Leader In Me

   Leader in Me

Leader in Me Jerabek Elementary School has been identified as a Lighthouse Leader in Me School. Lighthouse Certification means that we have implemented the Leader in Me program at a high standard with strong outcomes in teaching leadership principles, creating a leadership culture, and aligning academic systems.  Leader in Me Lighthouse Schools serve as exemplars to their community and other schools. 

Leader in Me is a whole-school transformation model that improves the performance of all school programs.  As a Leader in Me school, students, families, and staff learn how to be responsible, show initiative, be creative, set goals and meet them, get along with people of various backgrounds and cultures, resolve conflicts, and solve problems. 

Dr. Covey, the author of the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, defines leadership as “communicating a person’s worth and potential so clearly that they are inspired to see it in themselves.”  As a Leader in Me school, everyone learns how to apply the 7 Habits to their personal and academic/professional lives.  Leadership roles and events take place for our entire community, including our daily morning messages and our monthly Leader In Me Awards Assemblies.  We also apply our leadership skills more deeply to academics through goal setting, data tracking, and student-led conferences.   Together, we recognize and celebrate the greatness of each child and provide students with multiple opportunities to develop their full potential. 

Leadership is not for a few but for everyone.  Leadership is not a position.  It is action - the actions we take every day.  Let’s be leaders together and inspire change in our communities.  Our hope is that each of you will join us on this journey of greatness!
