Welcome to Teach 4 the Heart!

Hi, I’m Linda Kardamis

I always wanted to be a 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.

Our Mission

Teach for the Heart is designed for Christian educators in public and private schools.
Our focus is different.
In public schools, we strive to be a bright light pushing back darkness.
In Christian schools, we seek to make disciples who will make disciples.
But our goal is the same: to see God change lives through us.
To accomplish our mission, we must be our best at all this: balance, classroom management, academics, worldview, prayer.
Then we can truly Teach for the Heart and watch our students change the world.
Join Our Mission: Join over 65,000 Christian teachers who receive practical ideas & Biblical encouragement via email each week (there's no charge). Join Now!
Our focus is different.

Simply put, we want to offer you uplifting, practical advice from a biblical viewpoint. 

While we are at it, we want to connect educators from public and private school spheres instead of dividing them.  We believe that benefits us all.
