Hello and good evening

This is not Sims-related. 

Now for the news.

I don't often talk about work on here but matters are coming to a head and I really need to mutter a little. French Immersion is a crucial part of Manitoba's education system. My school division has been in dire need of a FI middle school and finally, this is going to happen next year. It's been taking place over the last two or three years as the Immersion program moves from my school (dual track) to the new school (completely FI) grade by grade. Next year all three grades will be in place and my school is going to be only English.

Over the last while I've been sending the French collection to the new school. This week I have packed the last two boxes and the courier will come to bring them tomorrow. All I have to do next week is clean out my office, do a last bit of cataloguing, work on notes for the library tech taking my place and... not sure what else.

Oh yeah. I'm joining my collection at the new school. The librarian goes where the books go? Well, it's a matter of wanting to keep my 100% position. The enrollment at my current school has gone down over the last two or three years and now the library position has gone down to 50% for next year. The new school, on the other hand, is in need of a full-time library tech. And a fully-bilingual library tech is a requirement. So I'm heading out, after 8 and a half years, to new digs. I am guardedly excited to say the least.

Oh, and you can disregard that first line of the post. 😊

Thank you and have a good evening.

It's time for a truth

I don't get political on this blog but...

Thank you and have a good day.
