And Through That Window We Go!

My new college is great! I am now teaching only adults, and they are ready and eager to learn. It's a very nice change to see people take notes without being prompted, and NO ONE seems hung over. These people are in class because they want to learn, not because it's necessary in order to stay on a parent's insurance. In fact, most of them are sacrificing a lot of money to go to school, as well as tying up every Monday night for the next 3 years.

I'm taking my time adjusting to the new situation. Things that had been done by a secretary are now being done by me. I have no clue where my mailbox is yet, or how to access my campus email, but all in good time. I had to take the library tour with the students; policies are a little different, as are the hours. I have to remember to pray at the beginning of class--that would have been a firing offense at my last job. But my coworkers are very nice, and I have a long history with many of them--longer than with most of my previous coworkers.

God is good. The pain of leaving the community college is easing. I know that God is in control, and that he always has good in mind for those who follow him.
