Our Deep Hope

Telescope in Night Sky

We are people of hope. Not wishes or plans. And, more than just hope. Deep hope.

Deep hope represents why you followed the call to be a teacher in a Christian school. It aligns with the desires that parents have as they enroll their children in your school. It reflects the promises contained within your school’s mission and vision statement and points toward your place in God’s story.

And, within Teaching for Transformation, it is the first question we ask ourselves when we design learning experiences for our students: “What is our deep hope?”

It is our North Star that guides us on our learning journey within our Christian schools.

Praise for TfT

Rebeka Mesbergen
For the first time in my 20+ years of teaching, I have an authentic way of integrating faith into math. I love that! TfT has helped me to approach my lesson planning and teaching in general in a fresh way, a way that is meaningful and impactful for both me and my students. Through TfT, my students have opportunities to discover their role in God's Big Story through their learning each day.

The TfT Journey

Implementing the Teaching for Transformation design framework is a formational journey for you and for your staff. We partner with you in this journey through the following stages:

1. Exploring with you how TfT aligns with your school’s mission and vision for Christian education.

2. Equipping and empowering your staff with the design tools and practices for the implementation of TfT.

3. Continuous support to deepen the TfT professional growth journey.

Begin your school’s Teaching for Transformation journey into the rich promises of your school’s mission and vision. Your teachers and students are ready to see how their learning equips them to see and live God’s story.
