  1. Attending a workshop or class with the other catechists teaching the same grade is very helpful because ideas can be shared from “seasoned” catechists to the “newbies”. Camaraderie brings a comfort level to all and makes it easier to ask questions or plan strategies for activities, etc.

  2. Not only can you share ideas with other catechists but there is always something new I learn. I always love to hear new teaching options and so often try them out. Its fun also to meet up again with some of the catechists you’ve previously met.
