My Jobs

11 Feb

This week I have been reflecting on the many positions I have had in schools. None stands out more than the position of Director of Religious Studies. This is an important role in Catholic schools in New Zealand. The position requires a need to be all things to all staff members. In this role at school we must create an atmosphere where we have best possible outcome for the school. In this job I saw myself as a manager of curriculum, the driving force of things spiritual and manager of people. Being able to cope with these three issues are my problems.

The Director of Religious Studies needs to motivate staff and students. They need to have complex knowledge of all sorts of areas. They need to have a knowledge of all that is current in Religious Education. They also must have the ability to work with a wide variety of teaching staff most of whom do not see it as there major teaching subject. . These people all have a wide range of skills and abilities. They may also be teaching this subject under some protest. These staff members need to be appeased and given extra affirmation.
