What Manner of Teacher Ought We To Be
To understand how we should teach our children, we first have to understand why we teach them and what we teach them. We’ll discuss it all, but especially the kind of teacher we ought to be. We’ll look back into history a little and forward into Zion a little and align ourselves with the Savior’s plan in practical, simple ways.
Meet Joyce Kinmont
My husband and I joined the LDS church in California as young marrieds and moved to Utah in 1972 with four young children. We had a horrid school experience in California, so I thought we were truly in Zion when we put our daughter in first grade in Pleasant Grove. No, that wasn’t Zion. Then I heard about American Heritage, in an old church close to us, so we moved her there. Sister Shirley Andersen was her teacher! The next year we enrolled two more children. President Benson came to the patriotic program and talked told the students, “If all children in America had what you have here, I wouldn’t fear for the future of our country.” This was Zion! After our third happy year at American Heritage we suddenly found ourselves homeschooling, quite by accident, and living in Box Elder County. It felt so good to be home with my children. We were one of the first families in Utah to homeschool, and we’re still at it! I feel a personal connection to American Heritage from those early years and from the two years our LDS Home Educators Assn Conference was held there, and I feel a growing excitement as I see the school offering more and more options to families who seek a Zion education in whatever way works for them.
