Riverside Church offers a Spiritual nurturing program for New York City Public School Teachers. Riverside Church has agreed to set aside some time and space for teachers working in the Harlem, Washington Heights and Columbia University community to come and receive instructional preparation support and spiritual nurturing. Our colleges are preparing our teachers, but they are missing the one crucial variable important for successful teaching. Teaching is a demanding and challenging profession. Many teachers burnout because they have given their all. There is a power and a process that can help teachers handle impossible situations. Stopping by for God before entering the classroom can help teacher remain at their post. Teaching is a “Calling” and spirituality is the variable, which sustains the call.
