As teachers, especially those of us who are Christians, we want to encourage and serve our students…that is, until apathy sets in. Can I get an amen?! Apathy is poison in our classrooms, whether it’s seeping out of teachers or students.
Since this is the last week I’ll see this group of 8th graders (my students change classes at the end of each quarter), I always try to squeeze in one inspirational movie that will help them to see the big picture of what life is really all about. So, we are watching To Save A Life, a movie about a teenager who commits suicide in front of his peers at school. Sounds depressing, but my kids love this movie!!! The kids in the movie, and my students, totally look at life differently after seeing what apathy can lead to.
My prayer for you is that if you are experiencing apathy, the video blog will encourage you to turn it around and experience the joy and passion you need to fulfill God’s mission for you in your classroom!
Never forget – what you do in your classroom impacts lives both now and eternally! God bless you, teachers!
