“TeachBeyond teachers are ‘born again’ teachers – that is, teachers who themselves have been transformed and filled with God’s Holy Spirit to become empowered for a ministry of transformation.” It wasn’t yet 8 a.m., and it had already been a difficult day. So when Levi came to school late and out of dress code—again—I snapped. […]

As teachers, we often give verbal clues in class to encourage students to record the information that we deem important. Unfortunately, rather than listening carefully to the information presented, actively synthesizing this information, and recording the key concepts and ideas along with unfamiliar terminology, students often simply try to write down everything they hear. Far […]
We can grow together towards the common purpose of seeing God’s name glorified and His kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven.
When you moved overseas you left behind your store of resources and now you need ideas for your classroom. Where do you go? We are fortunate to live in the digital age, and most of us have access to that wonderful resource of all resources—the internet. But where do you even start in your quest […]

Over the past month, my church has been studying Romans 1:18-2:5. As we have examined this passage, it has been a sobering reminder to me of why our job as Christian educators is so important.
