Our Grandma Biba, also known as Baka. She deserves all the praise this week as she keeps us all inspired and moving along.
So, what happened with our Super Baka this week? Here it goes: Lately, I have been looking for a new job for myself because everyone knows my current job contract is coming to an end faster than I can move, and I came across a lovely job post. Instructor of German, not too many hours a week, at a university that is only a ten-minute walk from our house. How perfect is that. Perfect for our Baka Biba.
I forwarded the posting to our Baka (who is, by the way, in a far-away Croatia at the moment), thinking “Wouldn’t this be nice?!” Well,… our Baka never just thinks. She just makes things happen. So, she did apply – something I maybe would not have done, she soon afterwards had her interview via skype, and considering she has had a life-looong experience teaching German, two books under her belt on teaching methodology, and a personality that charms everyone but her son-in-law (they have been gifted with the same kind of charm, which then proves to be mutually ineffective), our Baka got the job.
She is starting in September, conveniently, just a couple of weeks after she comes back to Canada, and I have already heard some current Capilano University students are thinking of taking German next year just because she is teaching it.
Aren’t we so lucky to have her… Congratulations, Baka Biba! We miss you, and can’t wait to have you back.
