For over 10 years now, I have acted as a generally trained volunteer teacher of religious education and as a specifically trained “Our Whole Lives” sexuality instruction at All Souls Unitarian Universalism Church on Dale St. On the RE [religious education] general side, I teach children from kindergarten through about 8th grade, depending on the curriculum theme for the year or other variables. Themes range from “finding your spiritual journey” to “world religions” (that’s the one we’re doing this year). In “Our Whole Lives,” we have been trained to deal with issues of biological, cultural, psychological pertaining to children’s and youth’s evolving sexuality.
Our aim at All Souls is to expose children to a diverse range of spiritual, humanist, religious, and philosophical traditions of the ages and encourage them to think for themselves and be curious about their own bodies and minds and other people’s belief systems.
It’s a great joy for me and a wonderful way to share my own beliefs and values beyond my parenting and family.
