Learning Leadership Skills in Elementary School
Bowman, Richard F.
Kappa Delta Pi Record, v50 n3 p119-123 2014
Leadership is everyone's responsibility-even first graders. The most important contribution that any educator can make in an era of unrelenting change is identifying and developing aspiring leaders. Elementary school teachers can embed leadership development opportunities into the classroom to foster leadership dispositions and skills grounded in the spirit to include, the passion to serve, the courage to question, and the discipline to listen. Four leadership dispositions illustrate a framework for identifying and developing aspiring elementary school leaders.
