On the first day of October in the year of our Lord 2011, we, the representatives of the Administration and Faculty of St. Scholastica’s College, Manila, inspired and enriched by the Rule of St. Benedict, have come together at a Seminar-Workshop to draw up the Qualities of the “Benedictine Educator”. In the spirit of Ora et Labora, we are Benedictine Educators who …
1. Deepen our knowledge of and relationship with Christ that we may model Christ in all our endeavors for the greater glory and love of Him [RB 4.21]; 2. Build loving and caring relationships with people and the environment that would lead to transformation of individuals and societies, promotion of peace and justice, social responsibility (with preferential option for the poor) and ecological activism;
3. Are persons of character; 4. Are responsible and accountable for developing the individuality of the people whose lives we touch and for the other resources placed under our care [RB 64.7];
5. Recognize and respect individual differences, inspire and motivate learners to rise above human limitations and weaknesses in pursuit of the good of all concerned;
6. Exemplify self-discipline [RB 2.22], understand the purpose of rules and regulations, make wise decisions [RB 3.2] and are steadfast in their implementation;
7. Imbibe and adhere to the Benedictine culture and practice it in our work environment thereby creating a climate wherein beliefs and values flourish naturally;
8. Teach by example [RB 2.12]; and
9. Find joy in life-long learning and dedicate ourselves to academic excellence. CHARACTERISTICS OF A BENEDICTINE EDUCATOR
SELF- ASSESSMENT Administered to all faculty of the three Units with the end goal of determining the profile of the faculty as regard how much they have imbibed the said characteristics of a Benedictine Educator based on their own perception and assessment.
The same profile may also serve as a guide in coming up with faculty development activities in line with the Benedictine formation of the teachers. Anonymous Adaptation of 1 Corinthians 13:1-3 Though I teach with skills of the finest teachers
and have not love, I am only a clever speaker
and a charming entertainer
and though I understand all techniques and try many
methods and although I have much training,
so that I feel competent, but have no
understanding of the way my students think
and feel, it is not enough. The loving teacher is very patient, very kind;
is not shocked when people bring him or her their confidences;
does not gossip;
is not easily discouraged; does not behave in ways that are unworthy ,
but is at all times a
living example to his or her students of the good way of life
of which he or she speaks.
Love never fails. But whether there be materials,
they shall become obsolete;
whether there be methods,
they shall become outmoded;
whether there be techniques,
they shall be abandoned;
for we know only a little,
and can pass on to our students
only a little; LOVE. but when we have love
then all our efforts will become creative,
and our influence will live forever
in the lives of our students.
And now abide
skill, methods, love,
But the greatest of these is
love, That in all things,
God may be glorified!
