September 2012 • Issue 530 BACK TO SCHOOL — “When the winds of change blow, some people build walls and others build windmills.” Chinese Proverb Change is part of the aging process. Physiologically, spiritually, vocationally, socially, even emotionally Remember When…. Daryl L. Martin, Executive Director change is occurring as we age. Change happens. And with change comes the demands of new learning. The need to learn something new can be viewed as an obstacle or an opportunity. And truthfully there are times when it might seem easier to hide behind a wall of denial, rather than facing the need for change. But choosing to see the need for change as an opportunity can be a big step to making it happen! Often we visualize the school house as the center of the learning process. And it is true that structured classroom learning is important to laying a good foundation. But it would be totally misleading to think that learning ends at the school door. As anyone with accumulated years will attest, change experiences demand lifelong learning and most of that education will occur outside the classroom. The advantage of the classroom is that it provides structure. Without the classroom an individual needs to create the learning structure. Identifying resources and setting time priorities now rest with the individual and not a teacher. So SWISS VILLAGE EXECUTIVE TEAM AND BOARD MEMBERS Executive Team: Daryl L.
