The importance of being personal

We don’t know your students. How can we? But you know them, and they know you. These examples and speaking points in this teacher’s guide should be used to get your creativity flowing. Any suggestion we have pales in comparison with what you have to bring to your relationships with your students. Don’t tell our stories as yours. Tell your stories that relate to the topic and theme.

In this way the students get to know you and trust you more, and you get to be transparent about the things that mean the most to you. You too can be as transparent as Joseph in order to do the work God is calling you to do.

Last, students have an uncanny ability to discern truth from fiction in our lives. God has called you to be exactly who you are as a teacher, and the students will appreciate it and be changed by God in you!
