  • By John Horan, Mary Herbin-Horan

Product Description
We teachers and principals know that all growth happens in the context of deep relationships between young people and mindful adults. We can only go deep with young people if we stay deep. Staying deep is, at its core, a spiritual enterprise. Although our schools may be public or charter, parochial or private, in home or in a big or tiny building, they are all spiritual places. The soul of teaching belongs to no one faith, denomination, or philosophy, but it encompasses all of them.

In these days of chasing standardized test metrics, common cores, budget crises, pandemics, and protests, it is easy to forget that schools are the setting for the life of the spirit. Each school has a soul, and so does each teacher, principal, student, parent, and support staff.

Great schools are acts of love. They come from the deepest core of interactions between students and teachers. But we teachers and principals and support staff can run dry. Our lights can be extinguished.

The reflections in this little book are reminder notes about how we educators abide in a love that is a mighty spring and how we give and receive that love every day.
