In this special Covid-19 episode, Allie and Dan share a Christian Education National podcast of which they were part. In this chat, Darren Spyksma, Director of Learning from the Society of Christian Schools, British Columbia, Canada shares what he's learned about teaching in a Coronavirus World. Together we reflect on what we are keen to continue and also keen to leave behind, as schools find a new 'normal' post-Covid-19. We are grateful for CEN in allowing us to share this episode.
In this interview, Jo Lindsay shares what she loves about teaching science as a Christian teacher. She shares the journey that led her into teaching in a Chrisitan school and allows us to have a taste of what it is like to be in her science class. Jo's love for Jesus and the value she places on positive student relationships are evident as she explains the joy of looking into a microscope. Jo leaves us with an invitation to truly listen to our students and let their world inform our lessons. This episode will encourage and inspire.
Carly Yates reminds us that teaching is a ministry as well as a job. She shares the importance of viewing the children in our classes as having value through God’s eyes. For Carly, relationships are extremely important and she challenges us to hold students to the highest standard because we care about them so much.
