Teachers Are Leaders Quote And Comment Of The Week: January 5 – January 11, 2015

Weekly during the 2014-2015 school year, And There Came A Day will begin the week with a quote and quick thought about Ignatian Education.

Teach us to give and not to count the cost 

~  St. Ignatius

One of the most well-known quotes from St. Ignatius is one of the best, especially for teachers (and students!) returning to class after Christmas Break. Getting back into the flow of the school day and the school year following weeks off is a challenge but, as St. Ignatius reminds us, not one that needs to be faced alone. Not counting the costs of the early mornings and the late nights and the emotional investment in the job is also a challenge but a challenge more easily met when God is at the center of our work.
