Teaching children, whether it is in a public, private, or home school, is a difficult profession. It’s not easy to juggle the various particular needs and learning abilities of each child, and often leaves the teacher feeling exhausted.
This is something that St. John Bosco understood well, as he poured out his every ounce of energy into educating children along the path of virtue. He knew that it wasn’t simply teaching them a list of facts, but leading them to be virtuous human beings.
When a teacher needs some extra heavenly help, he or she can turn to St. John Bosco, a powerful intercessor for all those in the field of education.
