It is easy to be acutely aware of the faults of others and at the same time, entirely blind to our own. A gift from a colleague, I am really enjoying Baillie’s book, and the opportunity to stop and pray, reminded of God’s character and my ongoing need for grace and growth.
Good teachers possess a capacity for connectedness. They are able to weave a complex web of connections among themselves, their subjects and their students so that students can learn to weave a world for themselves.
Building character is a key element of the work we do in schools. The best definition of character I have come across is this: it’s who we are when no one’s looking.
It is a privilege to be involved in education. School leadership combines my three great loves – God, education and people. It has been a rare privilege to combine these elements of my passion at the heart of my vocation.
I have always subscribed to the view that education is about so much more than preparing students for a job. It is about preparing students for life.
