People who are successful at anything usually have to take some sort of risk to get there. Gettting out of your comfort zone is a risk. So is failure, loss of status and all the time you will never get back. And of course financial risks can also be a factor.
Five years ago I had an idea that involved taking a risk. I wanted to continue my work as a counselor and also develop a new program for teachers. I wanted to a find a way for first year teachers at our school to not just survive, but truly thrive. I wanted to develop a year-long group that would offer support, resources, time to connect and extras like lunches and supplies. I wanted to run it with another teacher and I wanted our school to help fund it.
After so much work to set things up, find the funding, get everyone on board, change schedules and perceptions and mindsets.... I'm so excited to welcome our 5th cohort of teachers to CPA 1. Risk and reward, part of the same equation!
