It’s that time of year — backpacks, pencils, paper, notebooks, and off we go with another school year. Student’s aren’t the only ones preparing to get the school year kicked off, teachers and administrators have been busy for weeks getting the school ready to open its doors once again.
Dare for More has the wonderful privilege of partnering with teachers, administrators, and students all around the country as we encourage and train the next generation. For the past two weeks, Reba has come alongside two schools for teacher’s inservice. In Tennessee she shared with the teachers at Pleasant View how they could ENGAGE their students this year in a way that is impactful and creative. In Alabama, she gave the teachers keys to deal with stress in the work day, the joys of teamwork, and powerful tools of communication. In both schools, she led the staff on a prayer walk through their halls, classrooms, and facilities.
This is a great time to pray for all the schools as they kick off another school year. Teachers face many challenges during the year and they work with students who have many needs. Our prayer is that God will use them in a powerful way this school year. The students need miraculous days filled with the presence of peace and joy in their classrooms. They need answers to more questions than “what is pi?” Every teacher has the opportunity to shape a life this year. May God grant them the wisdom, knowledge, courage, and creativity to shape those lives in His image.
