Jesus wants YOU...for a sunbeam.
We used to teach the CTR 6 class. Now only I teach. A got a new calling, advisor for the Teacher's Quorum. (Is it Teachers? as in, quorum of more than one teacher? or Teacher's, as in a quorum belonging to the Teachers...) Anyway, the kids are so adorable and funny. The first lesson, which was on choosing the right, prompted answers mostly involving Wii or Playstation II. I enjoy the kids in Primary, but the leadership is rough. Now, I'm not begging for the job of Primary President, but I think I could pull it off a little better than the currents. Maybe do something interactive instead of showing a living scriptures cartoon. Singing time is almost worse. In the Primary Program, which was before we were teachers, it seemed like the chorister was singing a solo, which was surprising for how many kids are in the Primary. Now that I'm in Primary, I understand why. She doesn't prepare outside of church at all, or if she does, I can't tell. She just comes to church, and sings. No words or pictures for the kids, she just occassionally has them hum along with the piano for a verse before they sing words. Things are worse when the teachers don't even know the words. I kind of want to be called as the Primary chorister...but don't tell the bishop I said that.
