Interview with Dr. Karen Kennemur, Childhood Ministry Professor for Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. Dr. Kennemur discusses the ever popular question- “How to Retain Workers”. This is a common concern for anyone leading children’s and preschool ministry. I really appreciated her wisdom and I think you will too. The books she references are Good to Great by Jim Collins and the Leading Like the Shepherd by Dr. Kevin Leman. She makes several good points and realizing we are programing for two groups (kids and teachers) brings better clarity to my planning.
How are you building relationships with teachers? How do you deal with teachers that quit or just stop showing up? I’m looking for solutions that are legal! (wink, wink)
