It's been a long time since I talked about the LMC (for you newer readers, the Library Media Center) at Union High School. I haven't worked there for two years, so it hasn't been on my mind too much.
HOWEVER. I'm pretty sure I cursed the library aide position. The lady I replaced was there for years, maybe decades. I worked there for two years. After quitting full-time but staying after the position was cut in half, I left for a month to Japan, then came back to tell everyone that I was pregnant. (Pregnancy worked out perfectly though - I finished the end of the school year, Liam was born three days later.) I tried to work a couple weeks in August with Liam at home with my sister, then quit for good.
The person who replaced me (also in my ward) was a repeat. She got pregnant during the school year, had a baby in July, and decided not to go back to work.
The lady who replaced her was the mom of one my high school friends. Not likely to get pregnant. However, she did accept a 4th grade teaching position and quit the LMC job at the end of the year.
The position was open once again.
I know the lady who filled it this time, another mom-of-older-kids. I don't think she knows who I am, but I'll be watching with great interest to see what happens at the end of this new school year. Mwahahahaha.
(Also - poor Bill, having to train a new library aide 5 times in 6 years!)
