Teachers Who Pray would love for you to attend our 5th Annual TWP Conference — “Teaching in the Emergency Room” — on Saturday, April 7th.

We are so thrilled to have Dr. Stan Sonu, a medical doctor at Cook County Hospital, deliver a keynote presentation on trauma and its impact on a student’s body, mind, and spirit. In addition, we will spotlight Candace Moore, a civil rights attorney who will explain how childhood trauma has affected outcomes in K-12 education and the criminal justice system.

We will also have breakout sessions led by Chicago teachers and administrators who specialize in trauma-informed instruction and school leadership. An anointed songstress; a musician; and prayer warriors will take us deeper into worship and communion with God. I will moderate a panel on why Teachers Who Pray needs to exist and why YOU should join this spiritual-professional movement to fix our schools.

All registrations include a continental breakfast and lunch. Remember: early bird registration ends Friday, March 16th and is just $30.  If you know you’re coming, why wait until the last minute?

SHARE the news of this conference with others so that no one misses out on this important information.  Our students need educators who are informed about the science, sociology, and pedagogy of trauma.

Thank you, and I look forward to seeing you all on April 7th!

In faith,

Food for Thought from Marilyn’s Blog

What if every teacher approached his or her work with a legacy in mind? What if all educators viewed the future of other people’s children—i.e. their students, not just their own biological kids—as a significant part of their legacy?


I imagine that more teachers would stand up and fight for their students. I imagine that more educators would die fighting for our students.That’s what Robert Croston, Jr., principal of Jenner Academy of the Arts elementary school in Chicago, did.
