9780879464561: A Month of Mondays: Spiritual Lessons from the Catholic Classroom

Being a Catholic schoolteacher brings with it a unique

set of challenges, requirements, and rewards. In A Month

of Mondays, author and master teacher Karen Eifler

draws from her own extensive teaching experience and

that of her colleagues to help teachers, administrators,

and catechists reflect on the meaning and importance

of their work as "grace in action." Using humorous and

touching real-life stories to make her points, Eifler

digs deep into the connection between teaching and

spirituality. Meditations include:

Taking the God's Eye View

The Communion of Saints

Crazy Present-Tense Beatitudes

I Teach People, Not Geography

The Power of the Personal

The Tongue of a Teacher
