"Clifton Taulbert has once again brought us a poignant and passionate story of help, and offers some powerful, practical solutions for improving schools and communities at the level of parents, educators, and community members."
-Gloria Ladson-Billings, Kellner Family Chair in Urban Education
University of Wisconsin-Madison

"Taulbert unselfishly offers educators a practical approach to building strong school communities in a time when we are bombarded by demanding legislation, complex theory and endless assessments for measuring quality learning. Eight Habits takes us on a refreshing, personable and sensible journey toward school improvement."
-Glenn E. Singleton, Executive Director, Pacific Educational Group

"Clifton Taulbert eloquently captures the heart and soul of those who are called to serve humanity as teachers and leaders, and challenges each of us to be mindful of the enormous responsibility of nurturing our youngest citizens-the future trustees of our communities and our nation."
-Deborah B. Reeve, Deputy Executive Director
National Association of Elementary School Principals

"Eight Habits of the Heart for Educators is a fascinating, refreshing, entertaining, and, most importantly, informative book. It provides clear, concrete illustrations of how to develop a list of desired qualities in a school community."

American Association of State Colleges & Universities

Find a renewed sense of purpose and mission by using the Eight Habits of the Heart!

How can we provide all our students with a first-class education with all the obstacles and challenges faced by today’s schools? Based on his experiences growing up in the Mississippi Delta during the era of segregation, Clifton Taulbert shares time-honored principles that can transform the lives of the teachers, students, administrators, and staff within the school.

Through moving and inspirational stories, Taulbert explains the Eight Habits-nurturing attitude, dependability, responsibility, friendship, brotherhood, high expectations, courage, and hope-and how educators can implement them into their own lives and the life of their school.

This reader-friendly guide empowers educators with:

  • Real-life examples of educators successfully implementing the Eight Habits of the Heart
  • Intentional strategies and application sections to apply each habit in your classroom and school
  • Insightful reflective questions and personal assessments

Eight Habits of the Heart™ for Educators is a wonderful resource for principals, teacher leaders, professional developers, and study groups.

Clifton Taulbert is the president and founder of The Building Community Institute. He is the author of the awarding winning, Once Upon a Time When We Were Colored and Eight Habits of the Heart.
