Today was a big day at West Englewood Elementary. Change came upon us today and it was a bittersweet day. People moved up the grade levels, some went down. Grade levels changed across the board and it was wild.
It's easy to get comfortable and grow roots in one spot, to form lasting relationships. It's nice to know each day what you are going to get and be happy with it. But it is also tons of fun to be faced with a new challenge, a fun twist, and some new relationships too. So change has its rewards and challenges; just like everything else.
Next year I have a new team. Two new girls to get to know better. And two friends will move on to a new grade level, to a new team. I feel pretty lucky. I get to make new friends and keep the old. So if change is happening this is the best place to be. The best of both worlds. One is silver and one is gold.
