Corporate Giants Teach EBL Top Readers about Leadership
When you have Earning by Learning students reading 40, 50, 60 books and passing comprehension quizzes with 85% or above accuracy what's next for them?
Well---- Earning by Learning got together with a group of C-level executives and decided to create a Leaders' Circle. For four consecutive weeks these amazing executives taught EBL/Dallas ISD top readers leadership principals.
The Leaders' Circle volunteers had one goal in mind ---to transform these very bright minds into fully engaged thought leaders- the kind of leaders that evolve authentically from the inside out.
At Earning by Learning we believe that only leaders can build other leaders.
"I am proud to say that the Leaders' Circle program is an overall successful. The kids can not wait to learn the next lesson, and Mr. Dick Evans, CEO of Proliance Resource Group, is an absolutely wonderful teacher, story teller, and reader. Anahi, one of Mr. Evan's students, said that she was disappointed that the program would only happen for four weeks," says Mary Bilbrey, Dallas ISD librarian and EBL campus coordinator.
The Earning by Learning Leaders Circle will help engage some of our brightest minds in Dallas ISD in a very significant and life changing way. Our C-level leaders will help our Earning by Learning students connect patterns of action with habits of thought. In addition, the 4 week session will also help students gain insights into their core competences/characteristics. Identifying these competences,while young, will ultimately lead to high fulfillment and high achievement leadership -the kind of leadership that prepares our children to compete in a global workplace.
Earning by Learning would also like to thank Dr. Delores Seamster for creating such great lesson guides and coordinating the Leaders' Circle pilot programs at B. H. Macon Elementary and J. W. Ray Learning Center.
