The vocation of teacher is not limited to the professional practice of the art, science and skill of delivering the assigned educational curriculum. Within the complex multi-cultural milieu of the classroom, the ministry of teaching has expanded to include providing pastoral care to children with a variety of needs physical, social, psychological as well as the requirement to deliver the assigned curriculum. Often family/support members are part of this pastoral outreach. This course will offer an ln depth perspective on the extra curricular pastoral issues that have become endemic in classroom teaching. Particular attention will be given to ethics in ministry, as well as legal and boundary issues. Self Care will also be explored as an integral component in a balanced and rewarding experience of pastoral ministry in the classroom.
