I enjoyed our catechist meeting last night, especially getting the chance to meet my aide and my fellow 4th-grade catechists. It was also nice to see the 8th grade catechists with whom I teamed these past several years. They needled me about leaving their team and we had a good laugh about it. My aide is a mom who has served in the program for a few years and I believe one of her children is in my class which will be very nice. My class list indicates that I’ll have 14 students: 7 boys and 7 girls! How perfect is that?!
I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to do a presentation on the Spirituality of the Catechist and I believe it was received well. I know that it made for a nice conversation and hopefully gave us all something to think about as we look forward to this year.
Now it’s time to start exploring the 4th grade book of the Finding God program as well as gathering and organizing my supplies. First class: Monday, September 13!
