Journey to a New Kingdom

Today was a momentous day: it’s the day I was given my placement for Internship I.

Beginning this fall, near the end of August, I will be spending Monday and Tuesdays at a school in a small kingdom called Longleaf. The villagers of the area seem incredibly pleasant, and their overall approach to education seems quite advanced. In addition to addressing all the components of a student’s life and being, they provide electronic access to their school, even maintaining an online card catalog and a list of the school’s Reading Counts books.

While there, I will be required to utilize what I have previously learned in helping to create an atmosphere that is conducive to learning. Additionally, I’ll observe and document my learning experiences.

While I am excited, I’m also a bit fearful. But I know that this is ridiculous. I've got nothing to fear. I am sure that, with Christ, all things are possible…so, no matter what happens, I know all will be well.

Thanks for your encouragement dear Retinna.
Yes, I agree with you with God, all is possible but sometimes i also have fear too, as it's very normal, thus we need to always be equipped with God's word to help us.
I currently reading this book call " Your Best Life Now" by Joel Osteen, I will let you know after I finish reading OK.

All the best to your teaching assignment. God bless.

Take care and bye Retinna!

By the way, may I know what is the meaning of your name?
