    Change is what happens to us or around us. Transition is what happens inside of us as we adjust to changes.

    There are a lot of changes happening right now and it can be unsettling. We dont' yet know what "school" will look like.

    William Bridges, a teacher and management consultant, developed this model to help people understand and move through transition.

    In the beginning, we have Endings - Changes bring endings to what we've known. We must acknowledge the loss, grief and our own feelings.

    In the Neutral Zone, we try to make sense of the unknown and who we are in the process.

    When we arrive at New Beginnings, it is possible to find a lot of positive energy as we create the future.
