Leader in Me

"The Leader in Me is a process of school and personal effectiveness that is based on timeless universal principles of leadership" (Launching Leadership, 2019).

At Mark Twain, we believe in the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and incorporate them throughout our school day. We have daily Leader in Me lessons, and we ask that students wear their Leader in Me shirts on certain dates throughout the year. On LIM shirt days, we will be doing schoolwide celebrations and activities that focus on one or more of our 7 Habits.

Leader in Me Shirt Days:

  • October 13

  • November 17 & 29

  • December 8

  • January 12 & 31

  • February 9 & 28

  • March 8 & 15

  • April 12 & 24
