Educators New to Quakerism workshops give teachers and staff new to Friends schools the opportunity to explore the Quaker identity of their schools. Through engaging presentations and discussions with seasoned Friends school educators on topics such as Quaker history, beliefs, testimonies, and meeting for worship, participants gain a deeper understanding of the strong spiritual roots of their schools.
Learning more about Quakerism gives me a much better understanding of how I as a teacher can interact in the lives of my students and make my class a "meeting for learning."
Schools report that participants return to their communities with a greater understanding of the mission of their schools and renewed energy and enthusiasm for strengthening the Quaker dimension.
