Teachers for the 2018-2019 Religious Education year!
Teaching Religious Education is a wonderful gift for both the children as well as the adults. The first time I signed up, I was so scared! I worried that I wasn't smart enough, that I didn't have the skill set, that it would monopolize my precious time…. We have structured our Religious Education program to ease these concerns!
What does being a RE teacher look like?
Trust me, you have the skill set to be a teacher. The curriculum that is provided by the UUA is completely structured. You do not have to create a lesson plan!
Our goal is to have 6-8 teachers on rotation in each classroom so that each person should only teach 1-2 times per month. You can fill in what days you're available on a classroom calendar (either Drop Box, Google Docs, or paper calendar). This leaves time for each person to also focus on their own spiritual needs.
The Fellowship opportunities abound! By being a RE teacher, you get to know our young families in our congregation. Strengthening these relationships is essential to a healthy church community.
Our current classroom needs are:
- we need 4-6 teachers in Pre K-1st
- we need 2-4 teachers in 2nd-3rd
- we need 5-7 teachers in 4th-5th
- we need 5-7 teachers in Junior and Senior Youth
Please e-mail Sarah at DRE@HVUUC.ORG with your name, contact information and which class you'd like to teach!
