  1. I learned a lot from your fall webinar and I tried to put all those ideas into action for my third year as a 3rd grade catechist, unfortunately it did not work as planned. I love your ideas but when a catechist runs into serious discipline problems all your good intentions went out the window. It was a very stressful year and I had hoped for more feedback on how to cope with the end of year issues in this semianr. The good news is, I will try again next year 🙂

    • Peggy, you’re a trooper! I’d be happy to talk with you further about the discipline problems you faced and explore ways of coping with and addressing them. You’re welcome to send emails to me privately if you wish: joe@catechistsjourney.com.

  2. That was great doing this on a Tuesday. I have to teach tomorrow night. I was pretty impressed with the responses, you must have a gung-ho readership. Of course, we are all self-selected, so that skews the sample, but it was encouraging to see 190 people turn out. Even a 6-year teacher like me has some things to consider…I suppose I’ll need to re-read the Toolbox.

    • It was a pretty impressive audience in terms of depth. And yes, I think we all can find things to consider as far as improving as catechists!

  3. Joe,

    I had registered for last night’s seminar and intended to participate. But family situations called me away. Is there any way I can hear your conversations or presentations? I did download the Self-Evaluation Tool.

    Please advise.
