      We all depend on each other.  Every good thing accomplished within a school is accomplished through people working together.  In a highly interactive environment, like a school, teachers, students, and administrators can have fun while learning, making decisions and maintaining a positive social environment.  This requires trust and a level of emotional intelligence.  The premise of these programs are that schools are healthier and more productive when their relationships are strong and everyone achieves together.

      All teachers are leaders. Educators lead by example, act as mentors and coaches, communicate expectations, make others feel safe to speak up, inspire those around them, and challenge people to think.  However, these emotional intelligence and leadership skills do not always come naturally. If anything, skills that many educators and leaders need are developed over years of experience and through lessons learned in the classroom.   Mr. Riggs works with teachers to develop these high impact critical skills.
