Teaching is a hectic job. If you are reading this, you are most likely a volunteer teacher or tutor. Which means you have probably rushed from your job or home in order to arrive at your class about the time your students do. You may be frazzled and in a rush to set out the materials you need for your class. If you share your classroom space (like most volunteers) you may even spend a lot of time hunting down the basics like chairs and glue sticks. Your students are lucky to get a quick group hello before diving in to the day’s lesson.
All of that is perfectly normal. The fact that you are volunteering your free time and often spending your own money to provide materials for your students is admirable. Let me encourage you to re-think your entrance just a little though. You see, one of the goals of Teach One Reach One is to teach your students about God and His love for them. The best way for you to teach your students about God’s love is to reflect it accurately to your students.
