If you are scared of change, ask yourself this question.

    People are terrified of change.  Not just of change, but the process of change and what it entails you.  You cannot change your practice without work, time commitment, and sometimes shifting priorities.  In leadership positions, this is the same with helping people move forward and having them invest their time in a new project or initiative.  You will want to guard them from all of the work that they will have to do when time is precious.  So when you go through the process, ask yourself this question:
    Is this best for kids?
    If you can answer unequivocally that the answer is “yes”, then the change process is necessary.  It might not be easy, it might take time, it might be messy, but it needs to happen.
    If you are unsure if the answer is “yes” or “no”, use that same question to guide your search.
    If it helps our students, it is worth doing.
    That simple.
