What People are Saying...
You and Angela Watson have provided resources that are helping me get through the difficult times and spur me on to give my very best everyday. It seems like every other week I am wondering if I made a mistake going into teaching, crying out to the Lord for a way of escape from the stress and pressure and lack of finances. Then I listen to your podcast or read a great idea from Angela and you virtually talk me off the ledge. 🙂 THANK YOU.
The material you present is rooted in God’s Word and genuinely prepared from the heart. Bless you for all you are doing.
When I read about 30 prayers for Christian teachers, I shared it with teachers in our school, from Preschool all the way to our Senior High. They replied excitedly and inspired to pray for their classes, esp. since it was during our end semester prep time and we were challenged to pray for a month!
It is such a blessing to have a circle of Christian teachers to join together with in the trenches of the classroom.
I want to thank God for putting YOU in my life. I had asked for prayers and I know you prayed for me and all teachers that might be struggling in every part of their lives. Your support has been so GIGANTICALLY helpful to me. I want to tell the world. Podcast 5 and 6 is exactly what I needed and is perfectly timed.
I just had to tell you that this post "Is Teaching Stressing You Out?" spoke to my heart. I have moved grade levels this year and I honestly have felt like I would have a stroke or a heart attack trying to get it all together. Your post reminded me to stop and breathe in trust in the Lord with all my heart.
I just needed you to know, God is working through you and this ministry you are doing. I have seen it a few times throughout the prayer challenge and now last night again! Thank you for what you are doing.
This is a great resource for all teachers! There is something about every aspect of teaching including classroom management. Even after several years of teaching I found new ideas to implement in my classroom. Every teacher needs a copy of this book on their desk!
I love the work you are doing at Teach 4 the Heart! Every time I get your emails, I smile, knowing that God is using you to support me in this amazing profession! What a blessing to have people like you who encourage us in the teaching world! Thank you so much and may God bless you!!
I just wanted to say how perfect and timely this email was. I am currently watching/ listening to teach without anxiety and within the first few moments I had an "of course" moment and told myself off for being so negative and made a vow to be more open, understanding and patient. I have a lot of worries and difficulties so this was just what I needed to hear and at the right time. I love how God works.
Every communication I have received from Teach4TheHeart has been encouraging, uplifting and filled with hope. What you all are doing is not only an incredible blessing to teachers today, but also for the generations forming now, under the tutelage of those teachers whose hearts and minds you all are able to keep fresh, hopeful and encouraged. Keep up the good work!
I always find something useful and enjoyable in your blog. Now I’ll check out your podcasts as well. God bless:)
Hi, I’m Linda Kardamis
I always wanted to be teacher, 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; many were outright belligerent. My confidence plummeted, and as much as I hated to admit it, I wasn’t enjoying teaching. Instead, I felt like a failure in my own classroom.
But God wasn’t done with me. Through sound advice, a bit of trial and error, and much prayer, I gradually learned to keep my students’ attention, and I started to believe I could actually do this.
As I stopped living in fear of the next problem, I began to look forward to teaching. And while I loved those ah-ha moments when my students finally got how to solve equations, the truest joy came from watching God change lives through me.
No matter what challenges you’re facing, God wants to use you in your classroom. You’re in the right place. Let’s dive in.
Grow your confidence. Find perspective.
