It is wrong for teachers to have negative views of students and families. It is wrong for Christians to learn one set of beliefs in the church and then go out into the world, especially our schools, and use a different set of beliefs. A Christian should be a Christian 24/7. Our schools are failing because we have failed individuals in our schools as teachers and administrators. Christianity is not something you teach it is something you become and are. We become Christians when we replicate the life, ideas and teachings of Jesus the Christ.

Guide for Teachers


Spiritual Transformation Teaching


Teach the students you have and not with some perfect idea of what a student should be. Teach your students to be the students you want, teach them to be your students. If you do not like your students, then no one else will like them.

Make them teachable and likeable. Perfection comes in what you do to make the children students. Become the best teacher in the school, and let the student know that they have the best teacher in the school, and they are the smartest class in the school. They will be encouraged to work to make the belief a reality. Students want the best and the better, help them to know how the best and the brightest operates.

Project an air of professionalism and perfection in all areas and interactions throughout the education environment. Do not permit anything or anyone in the environment to demean or diminish your authority or your professionalism. Your authority to teach comes from how you are perceived in the environment.

If colleagues or supervisors disrespect you, you will not receive respect from students. It is necessary to clarify lines and methods of communications before successful interaction with students. There are role assignments in a school building. The principal is a teacher with a supervisory role. It is a professional role. The teacher is a professional and must never submit that professional role in any form of submission. The new teacher projects to coworkers and supervisors how to treat them. If a new teacher has negative views towards the students in the environment, the people in the environment will respond to the new teacher with the same view.

A teacher who does know the craft will not be respect. Unfortunately, Colleges and universities will not teach the teacher the craft. A new teacher may learn the craft from working in religious education programs or community base programs. It would be helpful to new teachers to volunteer some time working as camp counselors, Sunday school teachers, sports coaches, or scout leaders. Activities that involve the movement or supervision of groups of children will be beneficial. Teachers must train children how to be students in their classrooms and in the school building. Teaching is not a shared responsibility, is a role responsibility and an expectation responsibility. The teacher has a trained role that he/she is expected to carry out. Students have certain roles that they are expected to carry out. The issues of roles are not debatable. A teacher cannot teach a disrespectful student. Students cannot learn if he/she does not know how to solve problems. It is the role of the teacher to give students acceptable role behaviors in their classrooms.

Establishing roles of behaviors begin two weeks before the teacher enters the classroom. Class registers should be given to the teachers before the entrance of students into the classroom.

Teachers must know their students, and have behavioral rules for the entire group, and have strategies to help the confused students to comply with the rules. Do not adjust rules of behavior to students. Help students learn how to understand rules and conform to acceptable behaviors.


  • Understanding the role of the teacher.
  • Some college professors will have told you that teaching is a partnership, they were wrong.
  • They would have told you that the teacher and the students must come to an agreement about the rules of the classroom, they were wrong.
  • They may have told you that it is the role of the teacher not to frustrate the student, but to adjust the teacher’s behavior to conform to the needs of the student, they were wrong.
  • Professors may have instructed teachers to take into consideration, the socio-economic, ethnic, and historical events in a student’s life, they were wrong.
  • They may have told teachers to make allowance for unacceptable behaviors, they were wrong.
  • A considerable amount of what college professors have told teachers is wrong for the effective education of students, especially American students. Ethnic families traditionally have strong family structures and believe that their children should conform to the rules and behaviors set up through those strong family structures and values.
  • American families have the traditional belief of God, family and education, and expect those who work with their children to support those traditional values.
  • The media and textbook writers do not depict these strong family values, and may indirectly portray a picture of an ethnic group in struggle with itself and the society, they are wrong.
  • It is helpful if a teacher knows his or her students, but it is more important that the teachers know themselves and their craft.
