We are interviewing Austin Hanson, who teaches science to middle schoolers at West Central Public Schools. Picking up on our vocation series, we are wanting to talk with people in various vocations,(as we find them) to talk about how their faith impacts their work.
This was an amazing conversation with a very gifted teacher who talked about sometimes being the first male authority figure in a child's life, teaching kids about reaching and standard, and showing what forgiveness means.
We talk about the pressures that kids deal with in this generation, as well as what it's like to be a Christian teacher in a public school, with both the limitations and opportunities that involves. He talks about the developmental age of middle schoolers wanting to figure out their identity and who they are, and what they want to do with their lives.
