TEXARKANA — Several student and adult teams from the Texarkana ISD (TISD) Elementary school level have been chosen by the FranklinCovey company to participate as breakout presenters at the 2023 Dallas Leader in Me Symposium.
FranklinCovey designed the 2023 Dallas Leader in Me Symposium to discover ways to elevate education in the district, school, and classroom with this year’s focus being the community coming TOGETHER: of ideas, of genius, of people, and communities.
Morriss, Theron Jones, and Spring Lake Park elementary schools from TISD will present some of their successes as Lighthouse campuses as part of the Leader In Me process.
Students on the Culture Action Team at Morriss will present on the culture of leadership and community found at their elementary school. The aim will be to share with other schools how Leader in Me has impacted their lives in and out of school and present systems other schools can implement to similarly impact their students.
Theron Jones will have administrative and faculty team members demonstrate how a high-risk school reached Lighthouse status. Their presentation is entitled “Motivating Success with Trackers and Celebrations: The Journey of How One High-Risk Elementary School Reached Lighthouse.”
At Spring Lake Park, the administrative and faculy team will also facilitate a session on “Building Culture at a High Poverty School.”
