Beyond Academics, the Transforming Power of Seeing God’s Glory in Your Students

What does it mean to see our students as fellow image bearers… to see in them, and call
out of them, God’s glory? As teachers we have a responsiblity to teach, but we also have an incredible privilege to speak into the hearts, minds and souls of each student the distinct, God given qualities that make him or her unique image bearers. Does it strike you that a nearly universal experience is people mentioning a particular teacher or coach as having had a transformational role in their lives? After hearing this workshop, a veteran teacher of forty years commented, “I have never been more encouraged about my role as a teacher than I am now.”
