The Kingdom Teacher Series 

Becoming a Kingdom Teacher                                                            
Essentially, learning means a change in your thinking, a change in your feeling, a change in your behavior. Learning means that change takes place in the mind, in the emotions, and in the will.”  Howard. G. Hendricks.

Teachers will be presented with the five Core Values of a Kingdom Teacher.
A Kingdom Teacher:

  1. Leads a God-honoring personal life.
  2. Grows as a professional Christian educator.
  3. Develops positive student relationships.
  4. Masters the art of classroom instruction.
  5. Honors the role of the parent.

Those attending will write personal responses to each of the five Core Values and evaluate their proficiency based on the 25 distinctives of a Kingdom Teacher.  The end result will be a personalized MAPit© Summary (professional goal setting chart).

"The Becoming a Kingdom Teacher in-service program really sets the tone for the pursuit of excellence in teaching and in quality human relationships. This program is presented by two master teachers who model Christian grace and virtue and the best practices in education. I give this in-service program a five star rating. They will not disappoint your trust." - Fred Chase
