Leader In Me Muriel Summers

Our Story

Leader in Me was created by educators, for educators.

Leader in Me was originally developed by a principal and her cohort of teachers who wanted to teach their students necessary life skills right alongside their academic instruction, such as leadership, responsibility, accountability, problem solving, adaptability, effective communication, and more.

That principal was Muriel Summers. During her first few years at A.B. Combs Leadership Magnet Elementary School in Raleigh, North Carolina, Principal Summers and her local learning community identified “leadership” as the school’s new magnet theme. She decided to utilize Baldridge quality tools, FranklinCovey’s The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, and several other educational best practices in designing, developing, and implementing a leadership model for her students, faculty, and staff.

Within a few years, A.B. Combs a significant turnaround, and was named the #1 Magnet School in America. The school reported improved academic achievement, increased enrollment, soaring parent and teacher satisfaction, and higher levels of student self-confidence. Several other schools across the country took note, replicated Summers’ leadership model and, like A.B. Combs, achieved similar dramatic improvements.
