Entering the Story
Real-life stories. They are fascinating, inspiring and encouraging. Each one of us has a real-life story to tell. Our stories may be in different stages filled with both joys and struggles. Yet, our stories share a common thread. They are a living testimony and witness of God's faithfulness and grace. As educators, not only do we have the privilege of sharing our story, we have the blessing of being able to "enter the story" in the lives of our students, their families and our community at large.
"Entering the Story" is the theme of our annual Edifide's professional educator's conference on October 24thand 25 th. The theme is based on Psalm 145:4-7. We look forward to gathering with Christian educators from all over Ontario and being inspired by the stories of our key note speakers and colleagues. We also look forward to growing professionally as we thoughtfully examine how to bring best teaching practices such as assessment, differentiated instruction and project based learning to the lives of our students. Our hope and prayer is that this week will be a time where we "share the wonderful story of God's goodness" and "sing with joy about God's righteousness" (Psalm 145:7). As the stories of our lives continue to be written and woven together, may we all be a living testimony and bring glory to the greatest Author....our Heavenly Father. ~RV
