Pausing at the Columbia:

remembering why we are here

An event for teachers new to the District and for returning teachers who want to think again about why we are doing what we are doing. 

Sponsored by:
NorthWest Christian Schools International & Alta Vista

  August 21, 2001


How can we keep the exciting and challenging vision for Christian Education alive in the midst of the busy, demanding life of the classroom and school?


The heart of the work of NWCSI is encouraging and supporting member schools to flesh out their vision for Christian education.  We believe that we collectively are called to help every one of our students learn in order that they will be well-equipped disciples of Christ.  Keeping this mission in the forefront of our day-to-day work is a challenge. Time constraints, discipline issues, classroom management, availability of resources and a host of other factors can easily push primarily issues to the background.  We need reminders.  We need to pause at the Jordan to tell and retell the story of why we do what we are doing.  We need to embrace teachers new to our District, encourage them to tell their stories and to discuss with them ways to embody the mission in their day-to-day practice.


*Washington State Clock hours Available
