Summary "One of the most significant challenges facing teachers today is their capacity to work effectively with diverse learners. Building Connections responds to the essential needs that teachers have expressed as a result of reflecting on their experiences in schools, with learners and their families, and with colleagues. Many teachers today consider teaching to be a calling, a mission that reaches out to youth. They want to be faithful to this mission, to create effective learning environments and experiences that foster successful student achievement, and to have a sense of wholeness while doing so. This book is a personal reflection on the author's experiences with diverse people. It represents Eileen M. Cunningham's attempt to transpose these experiences and her responses to them into a framework that can be used by others who want to make sense of their experiences through a spirtual perspective."--BOOK JACKET
