Teach Like A Boss!
Teaching like a boss is not assuming a role that defies authority. It is not a means to denounce frustrations and emotional challenges experienced within the learning culture. But it is adopting the mindset of courage, perseverance, and a belief in one’s own ability to make a difference to overcome roadblocks. You, dear [teachers], are from God and have overcome them because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world (1 John 4:4, NIV). Knowing this, my friends, the time is now to embrace the power of I Am, return to your rightful place, and declare God’s ordained purpose and power over your life. Truth be told, you do have several superpowers! You are more than a conqueror. You are courageous, brilliant, confident, compassionate, creative, innovative, dependable, committed, indispensable, intellectual, resilient, a beacon of light that shines bright on the darkest of days and more. My purpose is to remind you that these superpowers reside within you. When these superpowers are activated you can bring resolution into your mission field and slay giants. In this world, we are not exempt from challenges, but they come to grow and mature us into the individuals God has ordained us to be.
