Episode 45 - Nancy Gordon
Nancy's retiring! Our Assistant Superintendent and educator of 42 years, Nancy Gordon, came in to talk to us not once, but twice. Unfortunately, for the first time ever on the podcast, the audio file corrupted and Nancy graciously offered to come back for a redo, this time with multiple backups. Mark Turpin and I ask her about her career, legacy, and also what it was like being the parent of a student who graduated from Delview. Nancy has been strong supporter of our school community over the years and I have had the pleasure of working with her on a number of occasions. We wish her a happy retirement!

Episode 40 - Marten Popp & Nele Haas
After a long pandemic hiatus, we are back! We talk to Marten and Nele, two of our International Students from Germany. They discuss their experiences growing up in Germany and about what surprised them when they arrived in Canada for the first time. Both Marten from Hamburg and Nele from a town near Frankfurt have been wonderful additions to our school and throughout the interview I was impressed by how well-adjusted they were for young people from a country 8000 kilometres away and also how well both of them have been able to understand and speak English. At the beginning you will hear Nele and I wait patiently as Marten decides on what chair he will sit on (after bringing several different chairs into the room). Bonus: a special surprise song at the end!
