Bethel University, none of us planned for this sort of semester. Dissolving in the middle and ending with every member of the Bethel community at home. But God is not surprised. God's work is not frustrated. Bethel, keep seeking God's perspective and keep believing that God is the one who began the good work in you and God will be faithful to complete it in you!
"No less God within the shadows
No less faithful when the night leads me astray
You're the Heaven where my heart is
In the highlands and the heartache all the same"

There was recently an article from Bethel.edu (https://www.bethel.edu/news/articles/2020/february/jeannie-mayer), shared by Covenant Baptist Church’s fb page, about Jeannie Mayer, a Bethel alum and principal at a rural Mn school who uses a combination of ENVoY training as well as Finnish practices in her school to serve her students better. I am also an alumnus (‘04, BA in Education), and wanted to comment on that article, but wasn’t sure what channels to go through to do so... Anyway, I am here to say that as a teacher, I LOVE ENVoY!!!! My school has it, and I have been certified for the past 3 yrs. It is so practical! If they could somehow offer training in it at a masters degree level program at Bethel, it would benefit so many teachers. **I will say I don’t think it’s quite right for brand new undergrads; I think it would be better for them to get their feet wet in an actual teaching job for a year or two first, so they can feel the real difference these strategies make in the classroom Cool to hear about this teacher though, and I’d be intrigued to hear more about the Finnish practices. 💛💙
