Mormon Church, Teaching, Vocational guidance
This article, adapted from an address to graduates from Brigham Young University in English, details the challenges particular to teachers who are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The author lists seven attitudes teachers should avoid and lists qualities teachers should strive to develop. These include teaching and caring about the individual, fostering in students an excitement for learning, and working hard. In addition to these qualities, Latter-day Saint teachers as well need to live with integrity and show, through their actions and examples, that religion is not diametrically opposed to philosophy, literature, and science.
