Welcome to the Northeast Region
Dear Kingdom Educator,
Crossing the threshold into March, we eagerly anticipate spring's arrival and earth's awakening. The bleak brown of winter is past, the fresh green of spring is here! As a part of our calling, we are greatly blessed to experience the transformational awakening of a student's mind and soul through the grace of the gospel.
God's grace and the transforming work of the gospel is the very foundation for the holiness and obedience that we desire for our students. True Christian educating immerses students in the grace of the gospel. —Donovan Graham
Let us be freshly reminded of our high calling as ministers of transformational education. May our words and actions reflect the gospel and a Spirit-filled influence to shape the hearts of students, from the inside out.
"He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant..." 2 Corinthians 3:6a
Father of Grace, allow the gospel of grace to flow through me this day, impacting the lives of those we serve. Amen!
Stronger Together, in Jesus!
David Hegedus, EdD

Does anyone have a good teacher observation form you use when it is time for yearly teacher observations?
I am interested to find out how different school assess Bible at the middle school and high school level. Which standardized test do you use for MS and HS Bible assessment? Do you assess at every grade level in middle school and high school? Does anyone conduct a comprehensive assessment at the end of the senior year as a high school exit exam? Are there ACSI standards in determining which grades need to assess Bible?
I would like to join an international Art show and only see them in the USA based on regions. Can I join since I am from America? Can anyone tell me how I can start an International one so we can all see art from around the world? Let's glorify God in Art—Renee Smith at Hope International School in Cambodia

Especially when my three children were younger, I always welcomed wisdom on how to raise them to honor and serve the Lord as adults. Dr. Larry Taylor, head of Prestonwood Christian Academy (Plano, Texas), has created a model for deliberately training young people; I’m sure you’ll find his ideas practical. —Dan
We’re raising our children in extremely challenging times: ungodly ways abound and loud voices hail those ways as right. How do you train children to live godly lives so when they’re old, they won’t depart from wisdom? Dr. Larry Taylor, head of Prestonwood Christian Academy (Plano, Texas), has developed a practical way to do that, and I’ve invited him to share it here. —Dan
When it comes to raising godly children, many factors are outside our control. Even so, there are several things we, as parents, can do that will go a long way toward reaching this goal. Dr. Larry Taylor, head of Prestonwood Christian Academy (Plano, Texas) and author of Running with the Horses, offers some insights here. —Dan
