My Best Teachers Were Saints

My Best Teachers Were Saints

What Every Educator Can Learn from the Heroes of the Church


The lives of the saints are inspiring to many people, but they can be especially inspiring for teachers. For author and lifelong teacher Susan H. Swetnam, some of the best, most inspiring, and most insightful mentors she has are saints of the Catholic Church—and a remarkable number of these men and women were teachers themselves!

In My Best Teachers Were Saints, Swetnam describes the lives of 52 saints that will be especially inspiring to teachers. Some of the saints' lives offer lessons on how to overcome the teaching profession's unique problems; others show today's teachers how to identify successes that are often difficult to discern. All of the saints in this book will encourage teachers to persevere in the educational work that God has called them to do.
