Teaching is the most wonderful calling, but it sure can be tough sometimes, can't it?

You want to be positive, encouraged, motivated, and passionate. But as the year wears on, it gets harder and harder to stay energized. Classroom issues zap your energy, paperwork engulfs you, and soon you're frustrated & overwhelmed.

You want to feel close to God, to know that you're accomplishing His mission for your classroom. But some days it's just hard. And confusing.

But I believe that when God calls you to teach, He promises the strength to do it well. We just need to keep learning, growing, and depending on Him.

You CAN find the confidence, joy, peace, and strength you need to inspire your students, fulfill your God-given mission, and actually enjoy the process.

If you're looking for a fresh perspective, practical advice, and a bit of encouragement, you're in the right place. 

"I really think your blog and podcasts are amazing. They have given me some helpful advice as to how to fix certain problems in my classroom, as well as how not to stress over the little things. You are making a difference in the lives of so many teachers and I appreciate what you do."   - Jennifer


"Thank you so very much for your insight, courage, and creative ideas for managing life in the classroom."   - Alicia


"Thank you so much for sharing your experiences with the teaching community. It has made a huge difference in my first day of school already. My principal dropped in during my first block and gave me positive feedback on practicing procedures until they become rituals and routines."    - Caroline

Imagine teaching with the same excitement, creativity, and enthusiasm at the end of the year as you do at the beginning.

Imagine walking into your classroom with confidence, knowing you can handle any challenges that arise.

Imagine the joy of being a bright light in a dark world, impacting hearts as well as challenging minds.

Linda Kardamis, founder of Teach 4 the Heart

Linda Kardamis

I always wanted to be teacher, and was so excited for my first real teaching position that I could hardly think straight. But a few months in, I realized teaching was a whole lot harder than I thought it would be.

Too many of my students just weren’t listening to me, and many were outright belligerent. My confidence plummeted, and as much as I didn’t want to admit it (even to myself), I wasn’t enjoying teaching. It wasn’t just the “you need to pull it together” meeting with my principal and the “I can’t face my class” 7:45am crying fit in the back hallway. It was the everyday struggle, the constant feeling that I was failure in my own classroom.

Praise the Lord, He didn’t let me stay there. Through the advice of trusted mentors, a much-needed book, a bit of trial and error, and much prayer, I gradually learned how to keep my students’ attention, and I started to gain the confidence that I could actually do this.

As I stopped living in fear of the next problem, I began to look forward to teaching my next class. And while I loved those ah-ha moments when my students finally got how to solve equations, the truest joy came from watching God soften hearts and change lives right in front of me. No matter what challenges you’re facing, you too can rekindle your passion for teaching. You’re in the right place. Let’s dive in.
