Teach And Reach for Classroom Miracles! Lessons On Teaching With Love aims to convince teachers and leaders that love is the key to miracle-filled classrooms. When Wendy Byard first began teaching, the college professor, like many instructors, thought all her students needed was a good lesson plan and an educated, well-meaning instructor. However, on her "Journey to Love", Byard realized that what God wants, and what every student truly seeks from a teacher, is the qualities of love modeled by Jesus Christ and revealed by the apostle Paul -- kindness, humility, generosity, and compassion, among others. What are the results of classroom love? Students who find acceptance, confidence, belief, passion, self love, and love for others -- truly miraculous results! Teach And Reach For Classroom Miracles! recalls Wendy's personal journey, classroom stories, and other evidence for her view: excerpts from hundreds of student letters she's collected. The book's second section "12 Love Lessons for Teachers" provides educators with concrete ways of expressing love and the means to create a more loving, miraculous classroom environment. Its inspiring, challenging message can change lives. So start loving your students today! Reach for a miracle!
