Won’t You Be My Neighbor II

Maybe you already know this, but the Minnesota Online support center is staffed by a wonderful group of people working out of an office in Perham, Minnesota. While our numbers are small, we are definitely a lively, fun-loving bunch. You can learn more about our support team by perusing our biographies.

Given the continued growth in online learning and success of other partnerships that Minnesota Online fosters, this week we posted an opportunity to add a new member to our permanent staff. You can view the eAdvisor listing at the MnSCU job search under Northwest Technical College.

In light of opening our arms (and hearts) to a new friend, here are three great reasons you (or someone you know) should consider joining our crazy group:

  1. It takes very little convincing to get us all on board for a potluck.
  2. Internal emails are often written in song lyric (and still make perfect sense).
  3. We have philosophical discussions on the use of the term donut vs. roll.

Watch for more information on our new team member later this summer!

Kim’s Final Thoughts

It’s always difficult for me to say goodbye because it feels so final but is there ever really an ending?  I will treasure the past five years working at Minnesota Online because I learned so much and met so many amazing people.  My hope is that I’ve made half the impression on you as you have made on me.  Every experience I’ve had in my time working here and every memory made will always be a part of who I am in the world…

Instead of saying farewell, I’m going to leave you with some final thoughts; here’s to staying connected through our shared memories and experiences: 10250054_xl

Keep learning – Everyday is an opportunity to learn and grow. No matter your age, try to learn  something new each day.

Stay positive – It’s your attitude in life that will take you far. Look on the bright side of each situation and always see the glass as half full.

Have compassion – Be willing to lend a helping hand and listen to a friend in need. Sometimes all it takes is someone to care.

Be brave – Find the courage to face your fears. Don’t let your nerves stop your from achieving your goals and experiencing life.

Keep going – Have a “will of steel”. Keep trying and never give up until you achieve your goal. Don’t let any obstacle stop you.

Have balance – Create a flow and harmony in your life.  Remember to live in the moment and find where your mind, body and spirit collide.

Pursue passion – Discover what motivates you and gives your life purpose.  Find that energy and drive to spark into your life.

“Good bye may seem forever. Farewell is like the end, but in my heart is the memory and there you will always be.” Walt Disney
