Designed for each school day in the student year, these light-hearted and insightful devotions offer lessons from the Master Teacher and a challenge to apply these lessons in real-life situations that confront educators in today's classrooms. From the student who attacks verbally or physically, to the lab experiment that goes wrong, teachers face a variety of challenges---and veteran teacher of the Aurora, CO public school system, author Susan O'Carroll Drake, shares not only her own experiences but the biblical principles she has gleaned from a study of Jesus' life and teaching.
This inspirational new book offers teachers:
A devotion for each day of the student school year, complete with vignette, recommended scripture, focus on a specific aspect of Jesus' teaching model, application of the scripture lesson, and a suggested prayer with challenge/focus.
Relevant stories that cover modern issues that concern teachers in the public school and inner city setting, including poverty, single parent families, overcrowding, and weapon use
Reassurance of God's presence in the teacher's life and classroom
Makes the perfect gift for the Christian teacher in your life!
