Cultivating Liminal Spaces: The Spiritual Lives and Classrooms of Teachers of Students with Emotional Disturbance
Madson Ankeny, Elizabeth; Maruggi, Matthew
Religious Education, v112 n4 p381-393 2017
While there is hesitancy to talk about spirituality in public education, many educators are recognizing the need for an inclusive spirituality as a resource for teachers and students. This research-based article highlights how teachers of students with emotional disturbance experience the spiritual in the school setting and how they foster spirituality in their students. The article is grounded in the theme of liminality, how participants' experiences of being "betwixt and between" in their lives and their experience on the margins of education, provides a "threshold" for spiritual awareness and transformative action in school and community.
