Cedar Valley principals gather for "Leader In Me" workshop

Posted: Updated:
CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

You could call it a summer school for principals.

Administrators are learning what it takes to be even better leaders.

Right now, five school districts are involved in a workshop in Cedar Falls. 

It's being led by Muriel Summers.

She's well-known for having the vision to create the first leadership-based elementary school in the country.

At this workshop, educators are reflecting on the school year that ended. They're also focusing on the Leader In Me program and how to improve it.

The Leader In Me program teaches students the "7 habits" or ways to becoming an effective leader. 

Right now, 21 schools in the Cedar Valley use it.

But that number could soon rise.
