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. Each one is available in person, by video, or by virtual meeting.
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. This presentation shows how a Christian philosophy of education works out in all facets of a school's life.
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.
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 comes with some risk 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 presentation provides tools to guide in the implementation of this process.
