Formation Workshops for Catholic School Educators
The current semester marks the visit of the third group of educators from Catholic schools in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada to take part in Formation Workshops for Catholic School Educators at Aquinas College. The sessions, planned and carried out through the Center for Evangelization and Catechesis and the Center for Catholic Education at Aquinas College, contain both personal faith formation and professional formation components. Just as the Catholic school educates the whole child, this program is designed to form the “whole” educator. There are twin emphases on the educator as a person of faith and the educator as a professional in service to the Church and the community.
In this video, participants of the workshops share experiences of the personal and professional formation they received. Their testimonials convey the impact of the program on their faith, their teaching practice, and their school. Take a look:
