Helpful teaching tips
Do I know what I’m talking about?
Good question. 😉
I’ve worked with kids in many different ministries & jobs over the years:
- I was a summer camp counselor for 10+ years.
- I served as activities director for 3rd-8th grade kids for over 5 years.
- I have more than 10 years’ experience as a kids’ club leader, Vacation Bible School volunteer, and Sunday School teacher.
And I’m trained & certified both in theology and in education:
- I have a Bachelor’s degree in Biblical Studies from a Bible college (plus a certificate in Biblical Studies from another school).
- I’m a certified Montessori teacher and I worked for several years in Montessori schools, with a variety of ages.
- My written work (devotionals, mainly) has been featured in Christian children’s publications such as Keys for Kids and Devozine.
My teaching philosophy
Make it meaningful
Over the years, I’ve developed a couple of outstanding convictions about kids’ ministry:
I believe that Bible lessons should be totally fun, but NOT “fluffy.”
And I believe that crafts and other activities should be supplements to the lesson, NOT cute “busywork.”
When I teach the Bible to kids, I’m not out to simply fill up my hour. I’m out to change kids’ lives.
It’s imperative to me that lessons, crafts, & activities be biblically sound and meaningful, as well as kid-friendly and fun.
Make it attainable
But I come from a super small church with a tiny budget. I know how it feels to view that expensive, big-box VBS curriculum as an absolute impossibility.
So I also always try to come up with games and crafts that require very few special materials (and I’ll direct you to the cheapest source I can find, too). And I make it a point to keep my own Bible curricula reasonably priced.
If you come from a small church and you’re struggling to come up with materials that will be interesting & meaningful to your kids without breaking the bank–or requiring hours of prep time–then you are exactly my kind of person.
I write for you.
And I’m so excited you’re here. <3
