Yesterday, we got to officially meet our new instructor. Our current instructor is really only filling in - he's already teaching the full-time day students. But we really like him, which made knowing he was leaving scary, because what would our new teacher be like?
We met her last week, but only for a few minutes, and didn't know anything about her at all.
We were all so skeptical and nervous. But, I had a feeling I was going to like her, and so far, I do.
She's been nursing for 28 years, and she's still so passionate about it! She's worked on every floor in every situation. When we asked her why she chose to teach (this is her first teaching job), she had this smile on her face and said "it's just a new adventure in nursing!"
I mean, we could not ask for a better quality in a teacher! We really are lucky, and maybe her passion for nursing will translate over to teaching, and it will become contagious. Hopefully, she'll keep that enthusiasm.
Some of my classmates are still a little iffy about her, but I say you gotta give people a fair chance. Don't pass judgement until you're certain they possess qualities that you loathe.
I think she'll be great, simple as that. I just pray we won't scare her away.
