We equip educators to effectively and legally live out their faith while working in the classroom. Our objective is to help teachers address both the academic and social emotional challenges that they and their students face. We do this through two primary activities:
Conferences, retreats, and “coffee talks” — Experienced educators, researchers, and experts deliver faith-rich presentations on important school topics like:
• Instructional Support
• Social and Emotional Wellness
• Parent and Family Engagement
• Cultural Competency and Awareness
• Religious Liberties in Public Schools
• Develop webinars, courses, and workshops that teach instructional and school-related best practices that are supported by biblical principles and spiritual significance.
• Provide teachers with access to high-level leaders who can help apply spiritual tenets to the day-to-day realities of the classroom – so that teachers of faith can approach their work in school as a vocation, not merely as an employment opportunity.
These programs help teachers develop a consistent, Christ-honoring posture toward their colleagues, students, and families. They also provide teachers a safe place to brainstorm ways to infuse their faith into their daily profession.
Publications — Curriculum and forthcoming books will allow TWP educators who are not able to attend the in-person events to access the valuable information shared at these gatherings.
We are creating a network of teachers, both locally and nationally, who support each other in faith, prayer, and spiritual conversations. We accomplish this through:
• Local TWP school chapters praying together at least once a week
• Monday night national prayer call
• Requests for prayer and encouragement exchanged on the TWP website
We are elevating teacher voice about the ways in which faith in God has inspired and empowered educators to transform their teaching practice and bring healing and reconciliation to students, families, colleagues and entire communities. The online TWP network also fosters an environment where teachers lead each other through a robust exchange of ideas on lesson planning, classroom management, and God-inspired problem-solving strategies. This happens through:
• Blogging, podcasting, and other media outlets
• Social media
• Speaking engagements
• Advocacy events and opportunities
• The TWP website
