Leader In Me

Manch Elementary is a Leader in Me school.  We teach our students the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. The Leader in Me is aligned with best-in-class content and concepts practiced by global education thought leaders. It provides a logical, sequential and balanced process to help schools proactively design the culture that reflects their vision of the ideal school.


Content from The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is a key component of the overall The Leader in Me process. The 7 Habits is a synthesis of universal, timeless principles of personal and interpersonal effectiveness, such as responsibility, vision, integrity, teamwork, collaboration and renewal, which are secular in nature and common to all people and cultures.


The Leader in Me is also aligned to many national and state academic standards. The process teaches students the skills needed for academic success in any setting. These skills include critical thinking, goal setting, listening and speaking, self-directed learning, presentation-making and the ability to work in groups. 


This year, Manch will be focusing on the 8th Habit, Find Your Voice.  Manch has the expectation that all students will strive to find their own passions and talents to help them succeed both in academics and in school leadership.  If you are interested in learning more about Leader in Me, please visit their website at  https://www.theleaderinme.org/.
