Grateful.

There are so many words I can use to describe the past 13 months I’ve spent working at School District 43 in Coquitlam but ‘grateful’ comes to mind first and foremost.

I am grateful for the opportunity I’ve had in the last 13 months to work for an amazing organization.

I am grateful to have been mentored by a true communications expert who I’ve come to consider a mentor and a friend.

I am grateful to have met so many kind, friendly and generous colleagues and who made showing up to work every day an absolute pleasure.

Thirteen months ago when I arrived I knew that my time there would be limited because it was a limited-term contract to cover a maternity leave. But even with the ‘temp guy’ tag, it didn’t take long for me to feel comfortable in the role because of all the wonderful people I was surrounded by every day, not to mention a leadership team that really strived to make the workplace a positive one.

I also can’t say enough about my manager, Peter, who promised me 13 months ago when I started that he’d help make me a better communications professional by the time I finished.

If you ever have the chance to work with a supervisor who take an interest in – and is willing to help you with – your professional development take advantage of it. People like that are few and far between.

I will always be grateful for my time at SD43 and, if the stars align and the role is the right one, I would love nothing more than to be part of that work environment again.

As far as the immediate future goes, I’m focused on just one thing only right now…
