Teacher Work Days

Teachers have just completed their first official week back in the school. This week teachers completed rigorous trainings and worked hard to problem solve for the coming year. A highlight of the week was the key note speaker and exercises in high performance psychology facilitated by our very own... Alisha Glass Childress! After her successes with Leland, Penn State, the US Olympic team and more, Alisha continues to play volleyball professionally while working for a high performance psych company called "Finding Mastery". Finding Mastery helps top athletes and professionals train their -minds- to be strong, just like one would train their body or hone their craft. LPS staff can't wait to share these high level skills in vision, perspective, gratitude and problem solving with students!
