The role of a teacher is not to talk. The role of a teacher is to invite learners to act so that they then learn for themselves, and they must act within the correct parameters. My dream job is to be a religious instructor within the Church Educational System of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Those ages 14-30 receive religious additional instruction (besides church) through these programs. Religion is seen as seemingly unimportant recently in many academic institutions yet the moral fiber of many societies rests on the principles set in place by religious means. Church is important, yet ritual action is calculated to lead to moral and ethical action. My job as a religious educator would instill and teach the leaders of tomorrow principles of faith and truth, as I understand them. These truths would, in turn, develop an upright heart within many of the students and help them to make decisions with integrity and ethically throughout all areas and aspects of their lives. Boyd Packer, a religious educator, once said “A study of the doctrines of the gospel will improve behavior quicker than a study of behavior will improve behavior. That is why we stress so forcefully a study of the doctrines of the gospel.” My passion is change. i have seen the heartache caused by a sea of drifting moral values. I DO NOT WISH TO JUDGE OR CRITICIZE. I only wish to strengthen those within my church who seek refuge from the storm.
