Alhamdulillah, we are helping direct the very future of our deen.
Or that’s what we might think. The reality of how difficult it is to teach two dozen or more students inevitably catches up to us. The varying learning styles and preparedness of the kids. Their personalities, manners, cultural backgrounds, special needs.
The curriculum requirements pile on as we try to differentiate lessons to reach each kid as best as we can. The clock is ticking as we struggle to cover all of these topics within a single year. The goal of merging the academic and the Islamic falters, and we’re left with is the anxiety of trying to keep up with basic requirements, just to keep our jobs.
