Editorial Reviews


"This book creates a whole picture approach to school improvement while shunning the current top down model in favor of a school-led plan. The approach not only increases school performances, but values the school-level leadership and instructional faculty." -- Amanda Mayeaux, Career Management Specialist

"If your district is ready to move from arbitrary to observable, from fractured to focused, and from silos to systems, you′ve found the book that can move entire organizations from a goal mindset to a growth mindset. Lee Jenkins provides common-sense strategies that impact the efficiency and effectiveness of our classrooms, with a clear focus on student growth. In an educational era saturated with the latest remedy for what ails us, Lee provides a refreshing cure by offering simple solutions for lasting change."

-- Dr. Jane Stavem, Associate Superintendent for Instruction

"Lee Jenkins has made a profound impact on the teachers in the Norman Public Schools. His work on engaging students and continuous school improvement has changed our focus and definition of learning. He has inspired classroom teachers, administrators, and district level personnel to set and achieve high expectations for all students." 

-- Dr. Joe Siano, Superintendent

Lee continues to be significantly influenced by the teaching of W.

Lee’s speaking engagements have taken him to most USA states, Canada, India, Guatemala, Peru, Brazil, Peru, and Chile.  He offers keynotes, breakout sessions, and 1-3 day seminars. On his website, www.LtoJConsulting.com, a full keynote, plus segments of breakouts/seminars, are posted.
