The Leader in Me is a process our school is going through. It helps us learn to be leaders. Adults can use it too.
Habit I
Habit 2 — Begin with the End in Mind

Have a Plan

I plan ahead and set goals. I do things that have meaning and make a difference. I am an important part of my classroom and contribute to my school’s mission and vision. I look for ways to be a good citizen.
Be Proactive
Habit 1 — Be Proactive

You're in Charge

I am a responsible person. I take initiative. I choose my actions, attitudes, and moods. I do not blame others for my wrong actions. I do the right thing without being asked, even when no one is looking.
Habit 3 — Put First Things First

Work First, Then Play

I spend my time on things that are most important. This means I say no to things I know I should not do. I set priorities, make a schedule, and follow my plan. I am disciplined and organized.
Habit 5 — Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood

Listen Before You Talk

I listen to other people’s ideas and feelings. I try to see things from their viewpoints. I listen to others without interrupting. I am confident in voicing my ideas. I look people in the eyes when talking.
Habit 6 — Synergize

Together Is Better

I value other people’s strengths and learn from them. I get along well with others, even people who are different than me. I work well in groups. I seek out other people’s ideas to solve problems because I know that by teaming with others we can create better solutions than anyone of us can alone. I am humble.
Habit 7 — Sharpen The Saw

Balance Feels Best

I take care of my body by eating right, exercising and getting sleep. I spend time with family and friends. I learn in lots of ways and lots of places, not just at school. I find meaningful ways to help others.
Habit 7
Sharpen The Saw
Now we are going to talk to you about our mission statement.We say our mission statement every day in the gym so we don't forget what we are going to be like in the school.
Student Led Conferences
Student led conferences are when students lead the conferences. Basically we have a notebook that we talk about. You share each divider with you parent(s). Afterward, your parent may have questions for you and your teacher.
Our Leader Wordle
Codes Of Cooperation
The Codes Of Cooperation are rules that help us to be leaders. We have 3 different codes. One of the codes we have is SAIL. We use SAIL in the hallway . Another code is ANCHOR. We use ANCHOR in the gym.The last code is AHOY. We use AHOY on the playground.

At McNeil Elementary, we
Love learning
Excel in all we do
Achieve goals together
Do what is right

Admirals are Leaders!
Leadership Luncheon
The leadership luncheon is a lunch when students go to eat with special guests. Students get to go because their teachers pick them for following the seven habits.

We Love The Leader In Me
Note from the Teacher
We use student-led conferences to help students be more aware of their grades, their strengths and weaknesses and how their work impacts their performance. Students love to see how they reach their goals more easily when they study and prepare for tests and quizzes. Students set their own academic and behavioral goals, track their progress and share their work with their teachers and parents. They reflect on what they have accomplished and what they should work harder on.

The leadership notebook is a wonderful tool that makes a huge difference in my student's understanding of their own learning. Parents also love hearing their child discuss their own learning during student-led conferences as well. My students have complete ownership of their education, even at third grade! I love it!
