But even though I miss my familiar colleagues, change is good. The art teacher and music teacher have been enthusiastically received by the students. Our two new first grade teachers are on a roll. The new fifth grade teacher is wonderful, original and a team player. The two new special ed teachers also are bringing their own personalities to the positions and are working fantastically with the other teaching staff. Finally, our new assistant principal is a breath of fresh air, giving our principal much needed help. Yep, change is good. I am thrilled that each of these teachers is here
But for what it's worth, I still miss Marcie, Nicole, Elaine, Beth, Molly, Leah and Rachael.
