Station & Qualification of a Teacher

Quote 1
Among the greatest of all services that can possibly be rendered by man to Almighty God is the education and training of children, young plants of the Abha Paradise…
It is, however, very difficult to undertake this service, even harder to succeed in it. I hope that thou wilt acquit thyself well in this most important of tasks, and successfully carry the day, and become an ensign of God's abounding grace… (-Abdu'l-Baha)

Quote 2
The instruction of these children is even as the work of a loving gardener who tendeth his young plants in the flowering fields of the All-Glorious. (Abdu'l-Baha)

Quote 3
Therefore must the mentor be a doctor as well: that is, he must, in instructing the child, remedy its faults; must give him learning, and at the same time rear him to have a spiritual nature. Let the teacher be a doctor to the character of the child, thus will he heal the spiritual ailments of the children of men. (Abdu'l-Baha)

Quote 4
The teacher, when teaching, must be himself fully enkindled, so that his utterance, like unto a flame of fire, may exert influence and consume the veil of self and passion… (Abdu'l-Baha)

Quote 5
Firmness and steadfastness, however, are necessary, otherwise it will continue for some time, but later be gradually forgotten.
Perseverance is an essential condition. In every project firmness and steadfastness will undoubtedly lead to good results; otherwise it will exist for some days, and then be discontinued.

Teacher Training :)

I have been humbly appointed as the Assistant Children Class Co-ordinator for Cluster Johor Bahru. This is my visit to the Bahai Community of Kulai. I met up with all the lovely dedicated children class teachers there and conducted a training on

1. Qualification and the station of a teacher - from the writings of Bahai faith
2. Revision of the Bahai National Curriculum for Children Class in Malaysia
3. Virtues - Speaking the language of virtue in class

We also played games and did a name tag- Teachers were required to write their names on it and then go around the room to write virtues on the cards of others. Seeing the positive noble virtues that lay latent in everyone of us.

I will share the training content shortly.
