It has really been a great week. I have felt so welcomed and valued since I have arrived that it has made the transition that much easier. Colleagues have invited me into their homes, taken me for meals, driven me to the grocery store, and so much more. It is such a blessing to work at a place where they truly value and care for one another. And I know that this is God's way healing and restoring some of what had been stripped from me this last year at my previous school. He is so good!
I am almost through with the Student Handbook for next year. I think that by next week at this time I will be able to send it to my boss for proofreading and then begin on our Emergency Response Plan....ooohhhh....you're all jealous, I know you are! It may sound like boring work, but in all honesty because I know where it's leading to...it's rather exciting and I am really enjoying it.
Still, there is much to be decided and much to consider that at times it is just beyond overwhelming, but Lynda, my colleague who will be in Rome with me, has confessed feeling the same and there is something comforting about not feeling all alone. It's good to know that it's not just me. :)
