Nowhere is the pedagogical impact more pronounced than on the hearts and minds of students taught by Adventist educators over the decades. So, in preparing this year’s special Education issue of the Southern Tidings, we solicited nominations for “Favorite Teacher.”
When Jennifer Stewart and her husband, David, first moved to Snellville, Georgia, they searched for a good school to educate their four sons. At first they enrolled the two older boys at an elementary school run by an independent Christian organization. They were satisfied, for the most part, and believed they had found the right environment.
That all changed after the couple lost a baby and the school tried to convince their oldest son that his brother could hear his prayers.
