Teaching like Jesus did

Take a new approach to teaching. This was the challenge given to those attending the Catholic Education Summit July 18 in Kennedy Union.

To end a day of workshops and networking with colleagues, keynote speaker Thomas Groome encouraged participants to establish and utilize a teaching structure similar to the one Jesus used throughout the Gospels.

Drawing from biblical examples, he noted that Christ was inclusive and encouraging to all, and that Jesus’ works and teachings were unorthodox for his time. Yet he never told others what to think or see. Instead, says Groome, “he let his followers see for themselves.”

Jessie Hanley ’12 attended the summit as a member of the Lalanne program, which trains recent college graduates to work in under-resourced Catholic schools while they work toward a master’s degree. Run by the Center for Catholic Education in the School of Education and Allied Professions, Lalanne will place teachers in schools in Dayton, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Indianapolis, Lansing, Mich., and Flint, Mich., this fall.

“This conference provided good insight into how to impact my future students,” says Hanley, who will teach this fall at Chaminade Julienne in Dayton. “Being part of Lalanne has given me a lot of opportunities, too.”

Lalanne is designed to meet the needs of beginning Catholic school teachers and improve their retention in Catholic education. Teachers make a two-year commitment to a Catholic school while living together and pursuing professional and spiritual development.
