Creating the Grateful School in Four Phases
Griffith, Owen M.
Educational Leadership, v75 n6 p64-65 Mar 2018
Author and educator Owen Griffith shares how leaders can infuse small acts of gratitude to energize their schools and create a positive, thriving culture. Leaders must begin by practicing gratitude personally, then slowly introducing the practice to their faculty and eventually students. With the right attitude and creativity, the acts of gratitude can not only change the school's culture, but also the community and world beyond.
