Future of our youth


Interesting and amazing piece of information from “Minister To Others” by Richard Leach & David A. Wheeler:

Jerry Pipes has reported that “88 percent of those who grow up in our evangelical churches leave at age 18 and do not come back.” … However, the percentage of high-school graduates who leave church falls from 88 percent to less than 4 percent when youth serve others alongside their parents. If you want to make a lasting difference with your family, pass the baton of service.”

Welcome to my blog!


With acquiring a new teaching position at an International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme Candidate School and the implementation of the new Common Core State Standards, I decided to journal about this new expedition, hence the birth of this blog. You will also find new ideas and resources. Thank you for joining me on this journey!

Let’s get srarted!
