Consequently, to less often to this in- for with all of is the focus of stands for s and Stu- in their classrooms. Research which led to the de- velopment of TESA found that teachers often form expecta- tions, some true and some false, about the future behav- ior and the academic achieve- ment of their students. These expectations are based on cur- rent information that teachers have about their students, and the teachers then often assume that a student's performance will remain static. As Halverson explained, a teacher may assume that a student will not do well in geometry because that student struggled with algebra or that a "perceived" low-achieving student will remain academi- cally the same during his or her entire school career. TESA training focuses on heightening teachers' aware- ness of those often false per- ceptions, and then showing the teachers how their expecta- tions may affect how they deal with those students. During the five-session training, teachers learn new ways to get feedback from the coordina- services for schools, re- TESA train- and this training method. said that TESA teachers spe- which aware and the quantity g the 1950"s School, Evansville, dress in '50s their "50 Reasons Why We Believe Resur- celebration.

Ask the people who benefit from the Catholic Schools Affinity Credit Card. The average monthly income per card is 83 cents, according to Justin Clements, diocesan director of stewardship and de- velopment. But since the affin- ity card has been in use m Au- gust 1991 -- the total gross income has topped $160,000. An Affinity Credit Card is a VISA or MasterCard issued to promote and generate income for a particular charitable in- stitution of cause. It is a nor- mal credit card, with a twist -- each time a purchase is charged to the card, the affili- ated charity receives a small percentage of the amount charged. Cards, in bright red and prominently displaying "The Tradition" were issued to pro- mote Catholic schools in the diocese and to generate in- come. The cards were issued by Citizens National Bank. Cards are tracked by the ad- dresses of the holders, and the money generated by pur- chasers in a community is re- turned to the school or schools within that community, ac- cording to Clements. Following are the deaneries, the number of cards issued to persons in the deaneries, and the total amount of income dis- tributed since the project began: Evansville East -- 1,426 cards -- $39,833.55 Evansville West -- 1,379 cards -- $34,396.75 Jasper -- 919 cards -- $16,779.85 Newburgh -- 542 cards $13,283.80 Princeton -- 486 cards -- $9,270.10 * Vincennes -- 393 cards -- $9,995.15 Washington w 529 cards -- $10,230.60 A portion of the income from the cards was withheld from the schools, because of possible tax liability. The total income to date is $160,961. The amount distributed to date is $139,053.40. Clements also provided the following figures for income distributed from earnings in the last six months, August 1994 through January 1995. Distributed earnings from that period added up to $24,036.35, and were sent to the schools as listed below: Evansville East Deanery total: $6,991.25. Christ the King, $859.92; Good Shepherd, $706.12; Holy Rosary, $1377.28; Holy Spirit, $594.26; St. Benedict, $978.77; Memorial High School, $2,474.90. Jesuit teaches business ethics HAMMOND, Ind. (CNS)- "People in business need to learn more about ethics," a Je- suit expert in business ethics told a group of Indiana busi- ness people. "Some business people think of ethics as frosting," said Fa- ther Rgymond C. Baumhart, past president of Loyola Uni- versity, Chicago, and the only clergyman to hold a doctorate in business administration from Harvard University. "I ically can cost money," he said. "But money and productivity are not the only gauge. You don't have to be a millionaire; you just have to make an hon- est living." Sometimes business people confuse ethics with charitable works, he said, noting his dis- agreement with a U.S. auto maker's statement: "you have to do well before you 'can do good."
