For those of you who follow iCubed, our gifted center recently received word that at the end of the school year it will be closed. The students who attend this center will be bused to a different gifted center in the district. I, however, will no longer have the privilege and honor of being their teacher. Instead, I am up for reassignment for a general classroom teaching position elsewhere in the district. As a class, we are heartbroken and working together to find ways to deal with this change.
The following are some of my favorite quotations related to change:
“If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.” ~Maya Angelou
“All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another.” ~Anatole France
“Be the change you want to see in the world.” ~Gandhi
“When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.” ~Victor Frankl
“Life is change. Growth is optional. Choose wisely.”
“Change brings opportunity.”
“If there is no struggle, there is no progress.” ~Frederick Douglass
“The mind has exactly the same power as the hands; not merely to grasp the world, but to change it.” ~Colin Wilson
“The only way to make sense of change is to plunge in to it, move with it, and join the dance.” ~Alan Watts
The best snow
is the snow that
comes softly in the night,
like a shy friend
afraid to knock,
so she thinks she’ll
just wait in the yard
until you see her.
This is the snow
that brings you peace.
And then there is the snow
that begins to fall
in fat, cheerful flakes
while you are somewhere
you’d rather not be.
And this snow
tells you, as it falls, that
it will send you home early,
Home is where you
need to be,
and this snow
will take you there.
