Moving on

I have been very lucky this past year, I am working at Kwantlen Park Secondary School, in Surrey. This school used to be called West Whalley and it was where I started my career in education. Many of the students who went to the school are now members of my facebook page and I enjoy seeing there comments and keeping in touch with them.

I am in my last week at the school and I am having mixed feelings. I am working with two wonderful people in the Career Resource Center (Kim and Rick) along with a very strong staff that cares very much about the students. I am looking forward to my new assignment but feel sad about leaving the school. Moving on is always like that, but Boomers are good moving on when the time is right. I am sitting in the Career Office at lunch as the army recruiter is fielding questions from students interested in a number of army programs being offered this summer. There are seven woman and three men in this session.  The students are here because the school wants to make sure that the students complete their applications are filled out correctly, so they can increase their chances of getting into the programs. The staff at KP are still caring and interested in helping students plan their future. I will miss them.
