Praise where praise is due

June 25, 2009

In recent months my wife, Kim, has got used to seeing my name in the newspapers.  Now the shoe is on the other foot.  In her weekly column in Carluke Gazette our MSP, Karen Gillon, mentions Kim by name.  Karen is talking about the end of the school term and is congratulating the pupils for all their achievements, and recognizing the sterling work done by teachers.  Then she expresses concern about the lack of jobs for teachers coming to the end of their probationary placement.  She says, “James [her son] has had a probationary teacher again this year and I cannot speak highly enough of Mrs.  Watson.  We need people like her in our schools and I continue to press both the Council and the government to find the money to employ more of these teachers.”  Karen already has our vote, but her support is very much appreciated all the same.
