Discipline problems, self-doubt, tense meetings, classroom stress . . . Couldn't every teacher use some saintly help? Every teacher can think of at least one mentor who has served as an inspiration over the years. However, many teachers--even those with a Catholic faith--might not have considered that saints can serve as mentors. Author and teacher Susan H. Swetnam believes that saints aren't only good teachers--they're the best teachers.

In My Best Teachers Were Saints, Swetnam focuses on fifty-two saints--many of them teachers--who faced challenges similar to those that nearly all educators face today, from indifferent students and recalcitrant colleagues to their own limitations and feelings of isolation. With the examples of saints such as Augustine, Ignatius of Loyola, and Scholastica, Swetnam eagerly shares how their words and deeds helped immensely in her own career as a teacher and how they can aid and inspire other educators as well.

Anyone involved in education--whether teaching religion or mathematics, kindergartners or graduate students--will discover within these pages a treasure trove of saintly help that is sure to prove that the best teachers are in fact saints
