Thinking About Transitions

Transition YearsThe start of a new school year is always a good time to think about the transitions our community is experiencing. As an international school we have transitions on multiple levels.  There are new colleagues beginning their ISB experience, new students experiencing Beijing for the first time, new administrators working through the complexities of a large organization and all of us in our various years of service at ISB have new students, and sometimes new classes.

The ASCD Educational Leadership magazine in April of 2011 wrote about the academic and social/emotional transitions for children at various ages or points in their academic lives.  As we start our first full week, of school, these ideas about transition and are sure to resonate with some. There is a little something for everyone.
