A beach in France was Rafferty Levitt-Pinsky’s fork in the road.
“I didn’t know what I wanted to do,” shared the 25 year old. “I was in the last year of my degree, on vacation with my girlfriend, and I said I am not coming back until I know what I want to do. I left confident that I wanted to be a teacher and I have not looked back.”
This fall, Levitt-Pinsky began teaching grade 3 at Linden Meadows School. He was among a group of staff members welcomed at our annual new employee reception. The gathering is the Pembina Trails way of celebrating our recent hires. The event aims to build community and provides an opportunity to share stories and experiences from the first few weeks on the job.
“The day before classes started, I spent the day at the school preparing, then I went home and watched Rocky and more of the Harry Potter series than I am conformable admitting and got really excited,” said Levitt-Pinsky with a laugh and a smile.
All humor aside, the new teacher has quickly developed a strong sense of pride tied to Pembina Trails.
“From the way the parents are involved, the way staff is dedicated, the phenomenal administrators, to the professional development, I am really happy to be a part of this division.”
Congratulations to all our new team members. We wish you all the very best in your new roles!
