Change for the better?

Most people resist change. Me included. But I have always known that change also means growth in some ways. And that, is good for me.
I have to constantly remind myself that I am no longer in SA. That things are not the same. That the people are not the same. That I have to CHANGE. It is easier said than done, of course. But I am determined to let God change me in this new environment. I will have to learn and unlearn and relearn quite a lot of things. Yes, sometimes that is scary. At times I have felt inadequate to deal with the things that have changed in the last 2.5 years in the school scene. But I will slowly get there. I just need a bit of reorganising of things.
I do hope, if I am to stay on for longer than the one or two years, that I will, indeed grow as a person and as an educator. I pray that I do not turn into some of those "old timers" who are unwilling to embrace new things and drag their feet when asked to move .... I hope I am still as adventurous and open to new things and new ways of doing things.
