You see them walk in. Someone who looks like a student. You think that this person is going to give a lecture on some really boring topic that no one cares about. But, they end up teaching you, and in the end, you don’t want them to leave. This is an experience that many students have when they meet their Senior Catechist.

The Senior Catechist program is a program where seniors can go and teach a theology class at catholic schools in Tulsa. The seniors can teach any grade that they choose, whether it be with elementary kids or middle school students.

The students have to apply, and get recommendations in order to join the program. The students also have to be Catholic.

Mrs. Jane Bender is a theology teacher who is in charge of the program. She believes that the Senior Catechist program is a great experience for students who want to become teachers.

“It gets their feet wet,” Bender said.

Claire Murphy (12) wants to be a teacher in early childhood education. She loves being able to teach, but it was difficult for her at the beginning.

“At first it was hard, and the kids kept correcting me,” Murphy said.

A lot of students have had Senior Catechists when they were either in elementary or middle school. Emma Glover (9) had a Senior Catechist when she was in third grade at St Pius.

“She made religion class more interesting,” Glover said.

The Senior Catechist program is an amazing program for those who want to be teachers in the future. It is also great for the children who are being taught by the seniors because the kids get to have an amazing role model for their theology classes.
