Book Cover Teaching-The Sacred Art : The Joy of Opening Minds   Hearts

Description

Authentic teaching is messy, exciting, frustrating, joyful, challenging - and sacred. "Through stories, information and reflection, we [will look] inward, going more deeply into the discovery of who we are, not only as teachers but also as women and men for whom teaching is only a part of life. I believe the deepest calling ...is the call to be who we truly are." - from Chapter Seven, "Teaching Who We Are" Beloved teacher Jane E. Vennard leads an inner exploration of the hopes and fears, joys and frustrations, gifts and limitations that influence teachers of all kinds - teachers like you - every day. Drawing on her own experience as well as stories from many teachers in conventional and unconventional settings, she inspires you to reconnect to your original desire to open minds and hearts to learning. With reflection questions, practices and activities, she helps you reinvigorate your passion for your vocation, your students and your subject, thus recognizing how teaching is a sacred art.
