Participants will collaboratively discuss and submit written reflections and lessons on the 7 Habits (Be Proactive, Begin With the End in Mind, Put First Things First, Think Win-Win, Seek First to Understand Then Be Understood, Synergize, and Sharpen the Saw) Focus will be on how to develop a classroom leadership model specifically for students grades 1-6.
