As we ring in not only a new year, but also a new decade, our New England Public School is bracing for new challenges and changes in the upcoming semester. Looking forward to these new challenges, I sat down with our librarian and art teacher, Bambi Mansfield who is in her sixth year at New England Public. She described her first semester of this school year as a healthy challenge. This school year she also started a position where she teaches an art class at the Dakota Women’s Correctional Rehab Center (DWCRC) and described her new opportunity there as a new and exciting chance to change women’s lives. The NEPS library is still making its transition to a more modern library with the help of scan checkouts, “Which is nearing completion,” says Mansfield. The biggest change she is bracing for this semester is the addition of junior high students into her high school art class, which she says brings in new situations for working with multiple different skill levels. “The high school students have developed a great family atmosphere, and I am unsure of what these students will do to this atmosphere,” said Mansfield.
