Teravista Elementary.....Where Leaders Are Grown
Our Journey Towards Leadership for All
During the 2010-2011 school year, one of our teachers began teaching her students about the 7 Habits. People on campus began noticing that her fifth grade students were exhibiting better behavior and making better choices than students in other classes. They started talking to her about what she was doing differently. When the Leader in Me Symposium was held in San Antonio, this teacher took it upon herself to take personal leave and attend the symposium. She returned to Teravista excited about everything she learned at the symposium and shared it with several teachers on campus. These teachers shared it with other teachers and eventually we decided as a campus that we needed to start teaching our students about the 7 Habits. We began informally introducing the 7 Habits to our students, but it wasn't long before we decided that if we were going to do this, we wanted to do it the right way. It was at that point that we contacted Franklin Covey and began our partnership. We officially began our Leader in Me journey during the 2011-2012 school year. On March 24, 2014, we were officially designated a "Lighthouse" school through the Franklin Covey Institute. While we were very excited to achieve this honor, it was never our end goal. Our goal is to ensure all students at Teravista have the opportunity to develop leadership skills and lifelong behaviors that will forever impact their lives.
