Apprehensive yet confident—
Never really knowing the ending, yet perceiving an exciting journey--
Always upbeat and hopeful—
From kindergarten through 35 years in education, more than 55 years (oh my goodness), always the delight and thrill of a new beginning—the first day of school!
And still, those same feelings -- and an additional sense of urgency-- to get to the work that I passionately believe can result in a more accomplished global practice, a practice that seizes the potential of collective action to make this world a better place.
This beginning is really very special.
