Our colleague and editor, Jim Naas, asked me to write a “human interest” story about changing jobs—feelings, things to think about, etc. As I began that task, I was forced to reflect on a number of issues that I would like to share with you.
First, my change of jobs was one of choice and opportunity. I was invited to return to my alma mater, Wichita State University, to join their faculty, where I would have the opportunity to teach graduate students and mentor doctoral candidates. Wichita is “home” for me: the “significant other” in my life lives in Wichita and has career and family ties there that are quite deep; all three of my degrees are from Wichita State University and many of the current faculty are mentors and friends from those days. So, “going home” seemed not to be too traumatic for a person who professes not to make changes easily!
