In other news, the school where I teach has been under construction this past year. Part of the just-minted classroom space opened today for our use. It felt magical to see students' faces light up when they noticed the pressboard barrier was gone from the end of the corridor. Their pace quickened, their smiles broadened, and soon they were pinballing around the new hall.
Change can invigorate or daunt or both. As Chronicle's hedgehog cover model might counsel, "Roll with it."
