God of wisdom be with me as I start this new year.
Remind me of the love I have for learning and teaching.
Give me insight to know the impact I make in the lives of my students, (even if I cannot see it).
Bless me with patience on the days they do not want to learn.
Provide the vision to compassionately understand their needs outside the classroom.
Allow me to help parents and include them as the best I can in the learning process.
Gift me with the ability to support my colleagues and administration; knowing education is a shared mission.
Show me humility so I can ask for help when I am overwhelmed.
Loving God, you have given me the ability to teach. Commission and bless me for this new year. Wisdom, understanding and knowledge come from your Holy Spirit. May I always know the noble endeavor of education and that through it I am a part of your creative action.
