12 Virtues of a Good Teacher

SKU: 13934



Unlocking the 24 Titles Given to Jesus in the Gospel of Matthew

By Brother Luke M Grande, F.S.C.

Here is the book you need to discover and develop the twelve virtues that St. John Baptist de La Salle (1651-1719) - patron of teachers, education reformer, and founder of the congregation of the Brothers of the Christian Schools - determined were most important for teachers.

Br. Luke Grande, F.S.C., fleshes out the essence of each virtue as it relates to teaching and how educators can cooperate with God's grace to actualize the potentialities of students in their charge.

In page after page, you will be inspired by practical advice and reflections, including:

  • Four prudent ways of establishing a well-run class - and dramatically reducing disciplinary problems
  • Six "fallouts" of impatience in the classroom - and the best way to guard against it
  • Techniques for establishing consistency, discretion, and "fair play" among students
  • How to overcome pride, make God the center of your classroom, and accept guidance
  • Two surefire ways to enkindle a love of learning within students and appreciation for small gains
  • The pursuit of wisdom - knowing when to act and how to await God's help with trust

You will also learn how to provide an example by how you pray and how you do "ordinary things greatly," and how "playing and praying" can be passed onto students.
