Retired Teachers' Association of Manitoba

Baby Blue

It was my first teaching job.  I was 23.  I taught high school French and drama.  I was dramatic and unpredictable.  I was not a party-er, but teachers in Thompson, Manitoba, were all imported from somewhere else, and there was a large group of us young ones, who had the freedom to go to the Headframe every night of the week if we wanted.  Perhaps some nights I stayed out later than I should have.
