77: Back to School (with Joan Zeberlein)

Getting ready to begin a new school year? In this bonus episode, Heather sits down with Joan Zeberlein, Associate Consultant with Kagan and Director of Missions and Hospitality at Grace Point in Newtown, PA. Joan shares suggestions for beginning the school year from her thirty years of experience in education.

  • “Prayer is foundational in setting you in the right frame of mind to tackle a new school year.”
  • “Our connection with our students is a hundred times more valuable than that colorful bulletin board border.”
  • “I would be more concerned about that physical space being functional than pretty.”
  • “How can I provide a safe environment for my students?”
  • “Our curriculum will really be accessed if we take the time to create that classroom where everyone feels like they belong.”
  • “Ask God to renew your mind, renew your love for Him, for your calling, for what you’ve been asked to do.”
  • “Any season I’m in, any trial I’m going through, I have a choice to either be bitter or resentful about it, or I have a choice to embrace it and steward it well.”

What’s changing our lives:

  • Heather: Preparing for sabbatical
  • Joan: Mom’s cancer diagnosis and stewarding this season

We’d love to hear from you!
