My role as an educator is ever-changing. While change is always associated with unsettling adjustment and fear of the unknown, change in education is an opportunity. Each time I am presented with a new teaching opportunity, I become filled with excitement and optimism in anticipation of the potential benefit I will gain. In order to be a benefit to my students, I must be open to the changes and ideas I get from my colleagues and students. Therefore, as an educator, I must be willing to evaluate and adapt to the changes that might be presented to me.
