Thought for the Week-Taken from The Leader in Me


“We only get one chance to prepare children for a world none of us can possibly predict; what are we going to do with that one chance?”

—Principal Muriel Summers, A.B. Combs Elementary


Instead of seeing children through the lens of a normal distribution curve—some kids are naturally smart and others are not—The Leader in Me paradigm sees that every child is capable, every child is a leader. This paradigm changes everything. See the image below.
