There are many pieces of advice whenever you’re about to face a change, a new journey, a different experience. Of course there are a variety of emotions that accompany the experience - excitement, anxiety, fear, joy, nervousness, and uncertainty, to name a few. As this school year comes to an end and a new year begins in August with significant changes, I received a great piece of advice and encouragement from a colleague I’ve had the pleasure of working with. Mary Childress, the materials management specialist of PAUSD’s Science Resource Center, shared the following words with me. I absolutely appreciate the change of the one word that helps focus the experience, any experience on growth and learning.
