Teachers Are Leaders Quote And Comment Of The Week: January 12 – January 18, 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.

I wish not merely to be called Christian, but also to be Christian. 

~  St. Ignatius

As teachers, counselors, administrators, as people who work in and around students, our role in Jesuit schools is more than preaching and teaching. There are plenty of great teachers not in Jesuit schools. There are plenty of great preachers who don’t know a thing about Ignatius. We are not them. While it’s an honorable thing for our students to know we are Christian when we tell them we are, the real crux of the matter is in this question: can they see that we are Christian in how we act towards them and towards one another?
