Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0809140624, Paperback)

Teaching is more, much more, than getting up in front of a class full of students and presenting information to them. It is, affirms distinguished educator, writer and lecturer Gloria Durka, a true vocation, "a calling that makes claims on our souls."

Her book, which is written for teachers of all grade levels, is a journey into the soul of education and the heart of the teacher. In seven chapters, the book covers such ideas as teaching from the heart; teaching courageously, creatively, wisely and morally; and, the greatest challenge of all, facing one's own vulnerabilities. Each chapter ends with prayers and reflections that help readers enrich their spirituality.

Primarily an exercise in spirituality aimed at helping teachers to claim, own and celebrate their calling, this book will appeal to:

--teachers within a Christian setting.

--teachers in public education.

--school administrators and those who offer teacher training experiences.
