Amy Walker 4th Grade teacher at Adair County Elementary School has been working to implement the Leader in Me idea's in her classroom this year. As always she is being proactive! These elements are not truly going into effect in the district until next year but Mrs. Walker is a go getter and always likes to challenge her students. She has allowed her 6th period class to take the ball and run with it as they say and "oh boy" have they ever!


Her reading class recently finished the book Alice in Wonderland and wanted to create a drama based on the book. So with Mrs. Walker's quick thinking she connected the idea's of the Leader in Me to the students idea. The basic idea behind the Leader in Me concept is to teach students leadership skills like goal-setting, teamwork, critical thinking, communication, creativity, and problem solving. Mrs. Walker saw a perfect opportunity to allow her students to learn through leadership.

Yesterday after days of hard work and preparation her students put on their rendition of Alice in Wonderland for a hand full of guests, staff, and fellow students. It was a huge success! Her students ran the process from beginning to end with her only facilitating as needed. The students had created all the props and set, they had assigned positions (which they had decided as a group) and everyone had a job that suited their skills and they were interested in such as video recording and makeup artist. The pride and ownership they showed was unbelievable!

The cast and staff were: Alice: Kiara Collins, Mad Hatter: Amber Loy, March Hare: Maggie Cox, Door Mouse: Halle Burton, Cheshire Cat: Annamarie Day, Cards: Emma Elllison, Mattie Willis, and Riley Wilson, Tea Cup: Hannah Burton, Narrator: Carli Ann Carter, Director: Collin Stephens, Assistant Director4: Hunter Hadley, Stage Manager: Noah Newell, Assistant Stage Manager: Bryce Rodgers, Video Recorder: Jaylan Carter, Makeup Artist: Maddy Feese, Invitation Makers: Camdyn Upchurch, Kaylee Campbell, Luke Janes, and Introductions: Laney Stotts.

Mrs. Walker is a wonderful example to her students of exactly how to be a innovative LEADER not a follower! - Shamarie Claiborne
