My Jobs Part Two

12 Feb

The task of Director of Religious Studies in a Catholic school now is clearly a leadership position in the Church’s faith community. I believe the role goes further than just curriculum leadership. It is a vocation of ministry where your faith is outwardly expressed. This role as one as witness, leadership and service and it seems imperative that the person taking on the role has strong gospel values. With all this in mind it is as the manager of curriculum that takes up the greatest amount of time. There is a huge amount of work that needs to be covered with so many year levels and modules within those levels. If the Director of Religious Studies does not have a fine eye for detail and finesse things will go astray. A teacher needs to find the trigger inside each student that will release his or her best work. Some students need to be pushed while others need space. Some need every detail explained, others work best on instinct. Teachers are much same. Being a Director of Religious Studies you need to have the management skills to recognize which is which. While I have stated it is important to manage curriculum well. It must be recognized schools with perfect programmes but those departments with motivated are those with effective teachers.
