FAITH NEWS SERVICE – With decades of experience behind her in teaching, administrating, and educational consulting, Kari Calcote is releasing an inspirational planning guide for educators. Published by Redemption Press (2022), Prayerful Planning: An Inspirational Planning Resource for Educators is a six-week planning guide and practical resource.
This new release includes strategies and tips grounded in educational research to help teachers monitor and support students, and includes weekly self-care ideas to alleviate stress, devotionals, and inspirational Scriptures.
Calcote, who has a bachelor’s in communications and a master’s in educational diagnostics, says, “Teaching is a demanding profession. The stakes are high, and the support is often low. But, remember, you are here for a reason. God is using you to reach others. Trust in his plan and know you are changing lives.” The Texas-based educator adds, “No matter why you chose this field, you will have a significant impact on kids. You hold the power to mold young minds, inspire greatness, and model kindness.”
