Leadership and Learning

A leader is defined as “someone who leads; one who has the principal part in something important; the head of a group whose example is followed.”  Leadership is “being the leader; having the ability to lead as the head of a group.”  LaRue Miller Elementary had the privilege today of hosting a leadership group of leaders from the Midlothian area at our campus.  Our Student Honor Council served as student leaders and guides throughout the building.  Mrs. Miller, our honorary campus leader, spoke eloquently about her educational experiences in Midlothian ISD to this important group.  Dr. Stewart and other MISD administrators took time out to share their thoughts and answer questions.  I shared specific information about our campus as well as the unique programs and projects  experienced at all six MISD elementary schools.   The leadership group spent time touring and visiting in classrooms to see our learners in action.  Some of our CBI and PPCD friends were working in Tricycle Town (our outdoor language learning classroom).  As you can tell, they were having a great time in the breezy weather!  Our StuCo presented each visitor with a special Miller Elementary t-shirt bag of goodies to commemorate their time here with us.  Yes, we are blessed in MISD to have community leaders who take time away from busy daily schedules to support and encourage our work in the schools; their investment today truly reaps rewards for the future in Midlothian ISD and Midlothian, Texas!
