Ms. Wong has decided to resign from the CBE. She had many personal reasons for making the decision. While Ms. Wong has only been here for a short time, she has made an impact on our school and her work with the other members of her professional learning community and grade teams appreciated her support. She also ran the chess club which attracted higher numbers than they have seen for a few years. We will miss her.
We are fortunate to have a talented and experienced teacher as her replacement. Please welcome Robert Billing to gold pod. He brings seventeen years of secondary teaching experience to this position. He received his education in Montreal where he taught for five years. He moved west in 1997 and became part of the Alberta education system through the Rockyview School Division. He taught grades nine through twelve at Chestermere High School for eleven years. He has also worked at West View School in the Calgary Young Offenders Centre for four months under a temporary contract with the CBE. He has worked together with Ms. Wong to make the transition a smooth one for our students.
