Leadership is commonly viewed as a title, limited to a select few or those who are most experienced. In reality, leadership is a choice. Everyone is capable of leading his or her own life and being a leader at home, at school, among friends, or in the community.

Shreve Island is proud to be in our 5th year as a Franklin Covey Leader in Me School. The Leader in Me is a whole-school improvement process based on the idea that everyone can be a leader. This evidence-based approach empowers students with the leadership and life-skills they need to thrive in the 21st century. 

What can you expect at a Leader in Me School?

  • Use of 7 Habits language across campus.

  • Students taking responsibility for the school by participating in classroom and school-wide jobs.

  • Students owning their learning by setting goals and tracking their progress in their data notebooks.

  • Celebrations for accomplishing individual, class and school-wide "wildly important" goals (WIGS).

  • Students working together in the classroom to learn content while strengthening teamwork and social skills. 

What are the 7 Habits?

Steven Covey originally introduced these timeless principles in his leadership classic "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People". These were later adapted to kids by his son Sean Covey in "7 Habits of Happy Kids".  

The 7 Habits teach us to be a leader of ourselves first so that we can lead others effectively.

SIE Students Reflect on the 7 Habits

After staff-wide training and much preparation, in 2013 Shreve Island was proud to be one of the first schools in Louisiana to be accredited as a Franklin-Covey Lighthouse School.  Since that time, thousands of schools all over the country and world have joined our ranks.  

Implementation of the Leader-in-Me is designed to integrate seamlessly into instruction and enhance every aspect of school life by infusing it with purpose and direction. Our teachers are trained to use LIM resources to integrate both the 7 Habits and the Paradigms into classroom instruction. In addition to taking more responsibility in the classroom, students may apply for school-wide jobs.  They also set and track personal "WIGS" (Wildly Important Goals) in their Leadership Notebooks.

Steven Covey: The Biggest Educational Challenge

The Power of the Paradigms

At the core of the Leader in Me training that our staff receives are the Paradigms. Our words and actions reflect the way we view the world and our role as educators. By first shifting our paradigms, we can better serve and empower our students to be leaders of themselves first, and others second.

The Framework

The Leader in Me program is lead by the Faculty Lighthouse Team. Each of these leaders take ownership of an area within the Leadership, Culture and Academic components and lead an action team of other faculty members to facilitate the program components around campus. We also have a Junior Lighthouse Team which meets to assist in planning and serve as advisory to the school leadership.
