After working three months at a Preschool center, I was due for confirmation. My job was to take care of the curriculum. As the annual graduation ceremony drew near, I was tasked to oversee the kids' smooth participation during the concert rehearsals.
"There were some important visitors around here! Can you stay at a classroom to design some activity sheets?" The manageress instructed me.
Shortly, my superintendent knocked at the door, and told me.
"The big boss is here. Can you join the rest of the staff now ?"
I was puzzled at my being 'isolated 'at first'. Had they forgotten about me? It was just a passing thought.
Pleasantly surprised, as I walked in, I greeted the Director. Soon he asked me what I studied at the University.
"That's a very relevant field. You've made the right choice." he smiled broadly.
I could understand that remark since it was during the financial crisis, and many had already lost their jobs. Nevertheless, parents were still keen to invest in their children's education. I was thankful for this job. I had painfully waited for about six months.
Later I was introduced to three other directors from different departments.
I was then sent away to help another teacher pick some suitable songs for the graduation.
When I returned to the centre, the superintendent spoke to me in private. She explained.
"Mrs Jealous,the manageress, accused you of being rude to the teachers, and disrespectful to the music director."
She paused to watch my reaction. In great amusement, I rolled my eyes but smiled.
She then continued.
"I have interviewed several teachers but they didn't recall you being rude or impolite to the music boss. I assure you our organisation treats every employee fairly."
I thanked the supervisor for her fair-mindedness in resolving the problem. Meanwhile, I was thankful to the Lord for delivering me from the risk of losing my job.
On my way to the concert, the next evening, I was invited to take a ride with the Director and my superintendent. Guess, who was the driver? Never will I forget that the driver was the very manageress who tried to malign my character to get rid of me.
