Ramnath Subramanian, a sixth-grade science teacher at Eastwood Knolls School in El Paso, writes for the El Paso Times on educational topics.
In his Thursday article, http://www.elpasotimes.com/opinion/ci_16515180, he points out the following:
“I applaud any effort by school officials to promote decorum and civility in the school milieu. However, I am acutely aware of the fact that family, community, and the popular culture play a larger and more defining role in children’s lives than schools.”
Yes, education begins in the home (Ephesians 6:4; cf. Genesis 18:16-19).
This morning, I thought I would share another one of Ramnath Subramanian’s articles with the fellows. Ramnath is a sixth-grade science teacher at Eastwood Knolls School in El Paso who submits an article each Thursday for the El Paso Times on educational topics.
As he points out in this article, we need to teach our children the power of creative writing, and the ability to communicate, not only with words, but adding color and imagination to those words:
When do I grow the most spiritually? When I’m teaching a Bible class where members can freely discuss the topic that is being presented from God’s word. Many times, members of the class have brought up thoughts and ideas that I never thought of in my study of the topic.
The Bible class teacher always benefits the most, not only from his or her study of the Bible, but from the input of other members as well. I grow spiritually, when members of the class offer their good wisdom and insight into the Word.
