You know that meme where you say what you were doing 5 years ago, 10 years ago, 15 years ago... well, it gets kind of monotonous in my case. On Thursday, I was given a "pin" to celebrate fifteen years of service at Camosun College! It feels nice. Strange, but nice. It was a very warm gathering of friends and colleagues, especially as there was mention there of my work in mentoring and of the connection with the teacher training at UVic, and there was one person there who was hired out of the UVic program, and a couple of newer employees that I had either helped hire or mentor or just encouraged. That felt really good. It's also a little strange to feel like a wise, venerable being, but also a nice place to be.
