Headshot image of Melinda PapaccioAs educators, we know that our teaching can set into motion a process of transformation that moves in both directions – our teaching transforms our students, and our experience with our students can transform us as well. It involves both the "outer work" of communicating knowledge and skills, and the opportunity for important "inner work" to be done.  In this retreat we will explore how our work can be the catalyst for spiritual events in our interior lives. How do we bring the fruits of that transformed interiority back into our teaching?  

Melinda Papaccio is a GEM Fellow in the Praxis Program, has been a First Year Writing Instructor / Lecturer with Seton Hall’s English Department for over 20 years and also teaches in the Department of the Core.
