Today our KCA teachers are officially back to school! I say "officially" because the truth is that our teachers never really left. While physically they have been on summer break, I know that they have been thinking about the new year throughout the summer. They have been planning lessons, even if just in their heads. They have been buying and preparing materials. They have been praying for their students asking God to prepare them to meet the needs of the children He has entrusted to their care this year.
Over the years, I have taught with some amazing people. Teachers everywhere pour their hearts into their work and have a passion for equipping and growing the next generation. I can honestly say that the teachers working at KCA this year are some of the best. They consistently go above and beyond to meet the individual needs of their students and to inspire a love for God and for learning. The children who enter their classrooms know that they are valued and cherished.
I believe this is going to be a great year! Our teachers will be used by God to impact lives, and in the process I know that He will also use their students to impact and grow them.
May God bless this new school year. May He give our teachers the needed strength and endurance -- and an excitement about how He will use them this year.
