Over the years, I have made presentations on dozens of topics to teachers, administrators, parent groups, and board members. I think you will find some humor, wisdom, and creative thinking in every presentation. The following are a sampling of some of them. Schools may use these and adapt them as needed.

What's so Christian about a Christian Education?
Once we know why we do what we do, we need to begin to think about how we are going to do it. Everything we do in a Christian school is affected by the presence of Christ. The following presentation is one example of a how a Christian philosophy of education works out in all facets of a school's life. You are free to adapt the ideas for your own school.
This PowerPoint presentation describes the eight principles that were hallmarks of the Christian school that Brian founded and led for twenty years in Alberta, Canada. It can be adapted to the needs of your school.
Why Christian Education?
Everything we do in Christian education flows from what we believe about creation, the nature of man, the nature of the teacher, and the teaching/learning process. Every person connected to the school needs to thoroughly understand how a Christian worldview is distinct from secular and humanist perspectives and why Christian education is fundamental to the process of discipleship.
Why Christian Education?
This is a comprehensive PowerPoint presentation that can be used with teachers, parents, students, and board members to establish the reasons why we do what we do in our Christian schools. The presentation is based in Scripture and filled with powerful quotes and practical reasoning. It's a primer on the Christian philosophy of education.
Using Student Feedback as Part of Teacher Evaluation
Student FeedbackUsing student feedback to help inform the teacher evaluation process is one of the most powerfully effective tools in an administrator's toolbox. It is fraught with danger and must be implemented with great care. However, when done properly, it yields information to encourage and guide a teacher to become the very best that they can be. This page provides tools to guide in the implementation of this process. There are three elements: system, survey, and spreadsheet. Each are explained by video, and each has documents available for download. The author appreciates your feedback as we continue to refine this process.
