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
