Eight Habits of the Heart for Educators

Today’s educators and students are facing insurmountable odds: funding cuts, overcrowded classrooms, increased bullying, high-stake test requirements. The Educational Landscape is changing at a blistering rate _ almost as fast as knowledge itself is growing. Yet, despite these challenges, we have still have high expectations for education. Education remains foundational to America’s continued success. This workshop and conversation have been designed to bolster the foundation for that continued success—a commitment to the focus on school culture and the type of leadership needed to create and sustain that culture—a culture that emerges from the on-going process of building community within our schools. Through personal narratives and an engaging presentation, the Eight Habits of the Heart presentation, based on Clifton’ book of the same name, provides participants the tools and conversations needed to embrace their personal roles in building a powerful school.
