Being a Catholic schoolteacher brings with it a unique set of challenges, requirements, and rewards. In A Month of Mondays, author and master teacher Karen Eifler draws from her own extensive teaching experience and that of her colleagues to help teachers, administrators, and catechists reflect on the meaning and importance of their work as "grace in action." Using humorous and touching real-life stories to make her points, Eifler digs deep into the connection between teaching and spirituality.

Karen Eifler served as a youth minister and taught just about every subject to middle and high school students in the archdioceses of Los Angeles and Oakland, California, for fifteen years. After earning her doctorate at the University of Nebraska, she found her bliss in becoming a teacher of teachers, and spiritual director, which she now does at Oregon’s Catholic university, the University of Portland in Portland, Oregon.
