3 reasons why you should share your ideas on The Religion Teacher:

1) Do not “light a lamp and then put it under a bushel basket!” (Mt. 5:15) Take your success out of the classroom and put it on the web!

2) We can only learn from each other. Whether you have thirty years of experienced or one, share you stuff and help your fellow teachers and catechists.

3) Be recognized by your peers for the great work you are doing. Teachers seldom get the opportunity to share what they do with their students. You might be doing great work that others could benefit from hearing.
