Notes from an L. A. classroom

When a teacher's expectancy of good from her students is fired by spiritual conviction, it always has an effect.

There's a very special place in my heart for all my students, regardless of their lives outside of school. I expect them to do well. I love my students, each one of them, and I know they feel my love for them.

Most of my students have probably never heard of Christian Science, and since I teach in a public school, I wouldn't offer it to them there. However, there's a lot I can offer them, especially by example, helping to bring out in them a sense of calm, order, and trustworthiness—qualities these students really yearn to make their own!
