Pair bids fond farewell
Teachers have mixed emotions as their time at Eidsvold ends
IT WAS with mixed emotions that teachers Karen Shepherdson and Vicki Keegan said their goodbyes at Eidsvold State School.
Both started at the school in 2009 and found teaching and being part of the Eidsvold community to be a rewarding experience.
This was Ms Shepherdson’s first teaching position and her first time living away from Brisbane.
Her partner Joshua Staunton also moved to Eidsvold in 2009 and worked at the Star Hotel.
They plan to return to Brisbane with their 12-month-old daughter, Lily.
Ms Keegan transferred to Eidsvold from Rainbow Beach State School as part of a senior teachers remote/rural position program.
Both teachers found that being at a rural P–12 school provided a wide range of teaching and curriculum experiences in the past four years.
During her time at Eidsvold State School, Ms Shepherdson primarily taught Prep andYear 1 but also taught some secondary classes in her first year.
Ms Keegan can now add secondary art, teacher/librarian, learning support and special education to her CV after her Eidsvold experience.
Next year Ms Shepherdson will be teaching at Ormiston State School and Ms Keegan will be at Caloundra State School.
FAREWELL EIDSVOLD: Teachers Karen Shepherdson and Vicki Keegan say their goodbyes to Eidsvold after four years.
