How to heal a boring class

This is given with permission...In Sunday School I help teach the middle class students. This year we have asked them to bring questions we might help them answer  and how to use Christian Science to  solve problems. One young lady wanted to know what to do about a boring teacher? We started with Science and Health by Mary Baker Eddy 476-477 "Jesus beheld in Science the perfect " teacher where a boring teacher appears to mortals, and how a correct view heals. I also told her to start with one good thing about the teacher and then build on it. About a month later the young lady's mother said "Don't you want tell her what happened?"   She then pulled out a list of the qualities she saw in the teacher. #1 If someone needs something she will help #2 She calls on her students equally #3 She has different activities based on different peoples ways of learning #4 If people can't see the board she will let them move or sit on the floor #5 she makes sure we are ready for our tests #6 she is understanding #7 she tries to make class fun.     The kids decided this really was a good teacher and they were enjoying her class. So it was a big disappointment when she had to leave the school for personal reasons. But before she did ,  the young lady gave her a card and added the wonderful qualities she saw in her , and of course the teacher cried for the thoughtfulness of the student.  And she said to me  "Christian Science really works!"        Nancy in Tallahassee
