An Invitation to Integral Health

Note: This article was first published in Portuguese at Didaquê, TeachBeyond Brazil’s educational resource website. Click here to access the original article. Every profession has its inherent challenges, difficulties, frustrations, and setbacks. Besides not being exempt from these, teachers are also susceptible, in many contexts, to health problems due to precarious working conditions, complex relationships […]

Safeguarding for Online Learning

Throughout this past year and a half, so much teaching has moved to platforms like Zoom or Google Classroom. Even this year, many schools are continuing with online learning. With this being the case, how can teachers remain in touch with the needs of their students, especially when it comes to safeguarding? I hope many […]

The Surprising Strength of Weakness

Two passages in the New Testament present a distinctly Christian and surprisingly powerful paradox-when we are weak, we are strong. The origin of this strength is found not in our practice, but in God’s Presence. “Likewise, the Spirit helps us in our weakness, for we do not know what to pray for as we ought, […]

God’s Big Story

After drinking my morning coffee, scarfing down a muffin, and almost getting lost on a convoluted university campus, I finally made it to the classroom of my first graduate class. The course was Mineralogy for Science Teachers, and I was taking it as a part of my summer professional development. It was my first time […]

Mission on the Move

Triangles, Trains, and Excellent Teaching

As an administrator responsible for overseeing instruction, I could tell when good teaching was happening in classrooms. Yet while I could see and feel it, I had great difficulty articulating it. Every teacher is different. Every class is different. There is no one way to teach. And certainly no one way to create an excellent […]

Developing a Heart for Transformation

Dear Friends. I know this greeting isn’t a normal way to start an article. It is more personal to remind us that how God develops our hearts for transformation is personal. Personal, not because it is based on how you feel—we must still soak in objective truth. And not because it depends on you—the Holy […]

Confessions of a Stressed-Out Teacher

I took a break from my teaching at one point to pursue further studies. While studying, I worked part-time as a waiter. I missed many things about the teaching environment: interacting with colleagues, watching students learn, preparing for class, and sometimes even grading. Yet, there was one thing I did not miss at all: I […]
