Farm Words

Red faced swearing emojiTransition to Stanion

It has been seven months since I made one of the toughest decisions in my life! I worked for Pratt USD 382 for 16 years. I was happy and loved my job very much. Why did I leave then? Well, things were great on the surface but not so great behind the scenes. There comes a time when you must step back and decide if what’s going on in your life really is good for you. So . . . I took a chance and applied for a couple of jobs. Most of my efforts were halfhearted. Then one day I got not only one call, but two phone calls. I was given an opportunity to change things in my life. I started working at Stanion in April. It has been one of the best decisions. Why, you say? Let me tell you. FARM WORDS!! Do you know how hard it is to ram your knee into a desk or smash a finger and not say a farm word? It’s hard!! I can say the word “crap” and not have an entire room going “ooh” with lots of gasps, and a quick slap to your forehead for your lack of self-control.

From Farm Words to Work Treats

Food!!!! Oh, my goodness the food, but you better be quick. As soon as the email goes out, it’s like an angry mob, and each man for himself. Poof – the food is gone. Never a dull moment. You see we have squirrels, and they get loose a lot, but we always seem to get things done.

Good Start to a Great Career

In all seriousness - in seven months, I have seen what it means to have a work family. I have seen it through cards, words of kindness, and generous donations to help a fellow employee in need. It is encouraging to know that at the end of the day, your boss has your back, and you could not ask for better coworkers. I have seen support, compassion, and camaraderie that cannot be matched, and I get to be a part of that. I am excited to see what the next 20 years of shenanigans brings!!
