Welcome to Bensley Elementary School! Home of the ROARing Tigers! I am honored to serve and lead such a diverse, thriving community of learners. Here at Bensley we excel in leadership and learning! Our Leader in Me framework helps us to become better leaders, learners, and citizens. Living and modeling the seven habits has become a part of WHO we ARE! Let’s continue to use these habits at home and beyond school to support student success. By using the same language and habits at home, you send the same strong message of what we believe is important and it shows that we are all working together as partners in our children’s education. Those Habits are:
Habit 1: Be Proactive (You’re in Charge of You)
Habit 2: Begin with the End in Mind (See your Goals and Have a Plan to reach them)
Habit 3: Put First Things First (Work First, Then Play)
Habit 4: Think Win-Win (Everyone Can Win together)
Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood: (Listen Before You Talk)
Habit 6: Synergize (Together is Better)
Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw (Balance Feels Best)
As we continue our leadership journey of growth with your children, we’re always striving to IMAGINE and CREATE a BETTER TOMORROW TOGETHER! We are infinite learners, leading with passion, forging supportive and safe relationships in a captivating environment!
We are a FULLY Accredited, two-time National Distinguished Title I award winning Leader in Me school As we continue to reach our NeXt LEVEL, let’s begin with the end in mind and pretend that it’s our future and our students are leading in industry, service, government, entertainment, and all other areas of their dreams.
